Former Ziscosteel workers get 40% of one month’s salary after 8 years with no pay

Union leaders representing former workers at the now defunct Zimbabwe Iron and Stee Company (Ziscosteel) have revealed that workers have received less than half of a month’s salary after going 8 years without pay. The company owes the workers more than $60 million in unpaid salaries dating back to eight years. The company released $400 000 for salaries which is just enough to pay 37.5 percent of a single month’s wages.

Ziscosteel joint workers chairman Benedict Moyo:

The company has availed $400 000 to the workers of ZISCO group of companies. The amount translates to 37, 5% of an individual salary.
