Over Low Wages CTC workers in disarray
Laborers of the leading importer of rice, Commodity Trading Company (CTC) on Monday 15th January, 2018 staged a protest in front of the company’s biggest store at Dock Yard, Kissy demanding an increase on the amount the company is paying them to carry a bag of rice on their heads.
According to the protesters under the youth age (18-35), the cost of living is increasing by the tick of the clock coupled with what it takes to seek medical among others are the reason why they are demanding an increase from Le700 to Le1,000 per bag.
Many of them spoke to this medium saying they have registered their request to the various store headmen for onward discussion with the operational management and the company headquarters respectively.
They added that it has come to their realization that the said headmen are deliberately sweeping their cry under the carpet to galvanize favor in the eyes of their superiors.
