alanAn aspiring Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Mr Alan Kyerematen, has lashed out at the government for its inability to mitigate the worsening plight of Ghanaian workers.
He noted that the dissatisfaction with public sector wages and the high cost of living had resulted in demonstrations and strikes by the various labour unions across the country.
He added: ?Such occurrences, if allowed to linger on, will have negative impact on productivity and to a larger extent, the economy?.
Mr Kyerematen said this during his interaction with the media in Bolga, where he was on a campaign tour.
He, therefore, called for creativity on the part of the government to mitigate the suffering and hardship of the Ghanaian worker.
Mr Alan Kyerematen also maintained that the NPP created the Single Spine Salary Scheme to be implemented over a minimum of five years to prevent problems that could result in industrial actions.
He explained that, ?enabling the private sector to expand will provide more jobs and create wealth in order to relieve the government of pressure as they serve as new avenues for revenue mobilisation and lift the need to absorb labour into the already saturated public sector?.
