Letter to the Editor

Employees seek Labour ministry intervention

Dear editor,
I WORK for a security company in Woodlands, Lusaka. I am urging Government, through the Minister of Labour and Security, Joyce Simukoko, to make a follow-up on the minimum wage because up to now, nothing has been done to redress our salaries.
Our company is seemingly not eager to implement the revised minimum wage.
Security work is a high-risk job, probably more than police officers and soldiers.
We spend a lot of time standing where we are deployed, especially in big locations.
Despite the long hours we put in, our company is not willing to motivate us.
To date, we still get between K800 and K900.
We would, therefore, appreciate if Government could intervene on our behalf.
