The scenario as it unfolds compel one to re-examine the engagement of the NLC (Nigeria Labour Congress) in this regard of minimum wage. One would not but say that for the workers to have waited for over three years and there seems to be no green light at the end of the day, portrays the labour movement as very weak, conservative and equally not willing to achieve a new minimum wage for Nigerian workers.
”What we have been seeing is a conspiracy of labour with the Federal Government to deceive the Nigerian workers and continually postpone the actualization of the new minimum wage,Emelieze said.
If labour is ready for the actualization of the new minimum wage, labour knows what to do even with the last aborted strike action by labour suggested that if it has carried on with the strike action by now, the saga would have been over.
All Workers Convergence (AWC) has declared that the lingering new national minimum wage issue was a reflection of the conspiracy between labour leaders and the Federal Government.
