World Cup Creates Up to 50,000 Permanent Jobs

New estimates predict that more than 50,000 permanent jobs have been created by the World Cup.

Gillian Saunders, the principal of Grant Thornton Strategic Solutions, said on Friday that between 20 000 and 50 000 sustainable jobs could be created in South Africa as result of the World Cup.

This is in line with the 50 000 jobs created during the 2006 event in Germany.
