General News Longlihua Manufacturing Company workers up in arms against poor pay

Workers at Longlihua Manufacturing Company in Lusaka’s Garden house area on Mumbwa Road have complained of poor working condition by their employer.

ZANIS reports that workers who talked on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal said they are paid a paltry  K20. 00 per day wage.

They also complained that their employer does not provide protective clothing and are made to work without off days.

ZANIS reports that  Lusaka Province Deputy Permanent Secretary Josphat Lombe learnt this development during her tour of the company on Friday.

Mr. Lombe expressed  her disappointment on the poor working conditions that the workers are being subjected to.

He has urged local and international investors  in the province to avoid violating labour laws adding that government will not tolerate investors exploiting workers.

But Longlihua Director Bob Wei told the Minister that only casual workers are paid K20  per day because of the training that the company is providing.

Mr. Wei also maintained that his firm also provides safety clothing for its workers adding that management was going to improve workers conditions in accordance to labour laws.

Meanwhile, Assistant Acting Labour Commissioner at Lusaka Province Administration Tamala Namakobo has given the company a two weeks ultimatum in which to improve working conditions.

  1. Useless journalism , LT sack some of your story writers, that’s why they print lies from ZNBC most of the time.

    What does this manufacturing company manufacture. ?????

  2. And yet you say we have a working government ala kuti waseka kikiki. I urge these workers to look around themselves and ask who voted pf because you will find that the monkeys that voted pf caused this on themselves and now need to stick with the cards they have been dealt. Lessons will be learned
