“You’re Fully Aware Of The Economic Situation,” ZBC Workers Write To Management

ZBC workers have written to their management indicating that they have been incapacitated by the current economic crisis.

Zim Live reports that the letter that was written on the 30th of Agust revealed that workers are demanding a “once-off cushioning allowance” of ZWL$1,000 while the works council negotiates for improved pay.

The workers revealed that most of them were now spending their days at work without eating anything as they can no longer afford to buy food. They added:

We think you are fully aware of the volatile nature of the economic situation we are in. Most employees are now unable to purchase basic commodities, pay rentals and commute to work. Currently, the bread basket is ZWL$1,600.

The letter comes when inflation in the country continues to soar higher. It also comes after the country embarked on currency reforms which saw the multicurrency system being replaced by a local currency which is continuously shedding value, particularly against the United States dollar.

Meanwhile, workers’ salaries remain stagnant.

  1. Simple- You should start reporting correctly so that the economic situation improves. You know, we know you always report that things are OK, yet they are not OK. Mukai
