Those who were previously disadvantaged eagerly welcome it.

The empirical research was done at the Traffic Branch of the Municipality of Cape Town an employer with an affirmative action policy. The results were tabulated for purposes of comparison. The overall findings of the research project are then discussed and concluded with research findings.
