Cape Times reports that Deputy Labour Minister Phathekile Holomisa told Cape Town business and government officials during a dialogue on equity transformation on Thursday that transformation at the workplace was happening at a painfully slow pace.

This was particularly so in the private sector, where top positions were still dominated by white people, particularly white males.  The dialogue was the first in a series to understand the dynamics of the implementation of the Employment Equity Act.  Labour spokesperson Sithembele Tshwete said countrywide there was an under-representation of women in executive, management and technical positions.  He added that there was a persistent gender pay gap.
