From black tax to necessities such as clothing, callers shared their experiences on-air.
I bought clothes. I spent most of my time at university without clothes. I wore the same clothes everyday and had to wash my clothes and sleep naked at night so I would not stink... I bought myself clothes to look like a decent student. That was later in my third year or so.Stanley, caller
I paid black tax. I paid my pay-as-you-earn and black tax as well. In rural areas, we have this 80kg mielie meal. I earned about R4 000 in 1995 and changed [my paycheque] into cash. I bought that 80kg and everyone was so happy.Letlhogonolo, caller
I got paid weekly. I blew my money up at Access Park cause that is the first time I ever started wearing branded clothing.Asanda, caller
