The South African car guard phenomenon has become an overnight industry, with more neon yellow bibs lining the streets than available parking bays.
Amongst the local flock, are many foreign refugees seeking asylum in SA. Some have medical or engineering degrees. Some are teachers and mothers. Some are merely opportunists.
We’d like you to explore the human stories behind this new workforce.
Interview Guidlines: Who are these people? Where do they come from? What were they doing prior to being a car guard? What are their aspirations? How much do they earn? How does the system work? Do they work independently or for the City? How legitimate are they? How are they treated? How do they choose their location? What are their shifts? Where do they live? Have they made friends?
