Workers agitated Against the salary increment of 4% in 2021 and 7% in 2022. It is very unfortunate that the Minister of Employment turned deaf ears to the cry of public sector workers calling on the government to review such inhumane Salary increments.
The minister should not pretend as if the 7% salary increment for 2022 is something new.
Hon. Ignatius Bafuor Awuah was making a mockery of us in his presentation telling us our salary increment is no more 4% but rather 7%.
Public sector workers thank him and his government so much for making a mockery of us but he should not forget that when they were in opposition in 2016, they were moving from one government office to another with MTN code asking government workers to contribute money to support their campaign.
We contributed and even Kayaye people also contributed to support your 2026 campaign but today the government we formed has turned a cold-blooded attitude towards us.
I don’t think if the previous government were to increase workers Salary by 4 and 7% in 2015 and 2016 workers could have been able to contribute money to your campaign fund.
There’s a saying that ” He who pelts another with pebbles asks for rocks in returns” by Odewale the gods are not to blame.
