Chairman of the Trades Union Congress (TUC), Reverend Richard Kwasi Yeboah is calling on employers to pay their staff or employees well to help prevent corruption.
Addressing the challenges facing the Ghanaian worker, Rev. Yeboah warned that if employees are not paid properly, it could lead to a rise in corruption because workers may begin to cut corners to earn more.
“For now what workers are getting, they can’t live on that and that leads to corruption. We’re all currently talking about a lot of corruption in Ghana. To help mitigate that we the unions need to band together to negotiate for better salaries for our people.”
Ahead of the implementation of the 2020 National Daily Minimum Wage (NDMW), the main umbrella organization for trade unions has also charged the various workers union across the country to come together to fight for better renumeration.
Effective January 2020, the minimum wage has increased from GHC 10.65 to GHC11.82.
