South Africans support social grants, but say work at any wage beats unemployment

“In April 2020, to mitigate the economic shock of a national lockdown designed to curb the spread of COVID-19, the government introduced a R500 billion ($28 billion) fiscal support package that includes a six-month increase for social grants. A special COVID-19 Social Relief of Distress grant was introduced to help those who are ineligible to apply for other grants.”
