Chop Bar Fufu Pounders in Central region threaten strike over poor wages. The hardship in the country is getting to every one.
The latest group to lament over the unending economic meltdown is the Central Regional Branch of Chop Bar Fufu Pounders Association.
According to the group, their employers are unfazed about their complaints over their meager earnings.
They say, the worst part of it is that when they compare themselves to their counterparts in Accra, theirs is a pittance given that they used the same energy and skilled in doing the work. Why must they be paid less?
“We are paid Ghc15 everyday and that’s meagre. Our colleagues in Accra are paid Ghc50 day. If our employers will pay us Ghc 30 or 40 we will be motivated to do the work,” one of the leaders in the association told TV3.
“Sometimes when there is pressure we don’t even eat. We work all day and the work is also tedious so there is a need for us to be well remunerated. If nothing is done about it, we will advise ourselves, we will go on strike,” another pounder warned.
