Oliphant wants minimum wage legislation finalised
Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant says that many workers are facing retrenchment and others are being exploited.
Oliphant opened the 22nd Nedlac Annual Summit at Emperor’s Palace on Friday morning, saying that there are many challenges facing workers in the current economic climate.
Nedlac, a consensus-seeking body, has brought together government, labour and business in the country.
The minister says that many workers are facing retrenchment and others are being exploited.
“And also we want to appeal to you that you expedite the national minimum wage draft legislative amendment so that we can be able to implement what we agreed upon.”
