The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions on Saturday told MDC supporters and its leaders to roll out demonstrations to force the Zanu PF led government to heed the voice of workers. Peter Mutasa was speaking at the MDC 20th anniversary celebrations held at Rufaro Stadium in Harare.
We have turned the wrong way. There are people who have never worked, there are people whose pensions were eroded. The people who are suffering look up to the MDC. It is up to you to get the country back on track, the country is sick, please arise.
Mutasa’s remarks fall at the back of the government reviewing the minimum wage for workers which saw domestic workers’ wages being reviewed to RTGS $168 for the least paid domestic worker against a published Poverty Datum Line of $1827 per family of 5.
