The independent presidential candidate for the 2020 general elections, Alfred Kwame Asiedu Walker, has announced that if Ghanaians give him the nod in 2020 he would institute a policy to stop the monthly payment of employees’ salaries.
Alfred Kwame Asiedu Walker said he would ensure that workers are paid twice in a month instead of being paid once.
According to Walker, the bi-weekly salary structure would help boost the lives of individuals who solely depend on their remuneration for survival economically.
He said he will also ensure that more jobs are created to engage the country’s teeming unemployed youth.
“Should we make it, I have also proposed a bi-weekly salary policy. Payday must be two weeks," he noted.
He added that due to the already existing structure in place where salaries are paid at the end of the month, most people tend to borrow money just for survival.
"There are people who have borrowed money before the month ends, and they can’t even pay their rent. So yes, we are going to institute this policy that is done elsewhere in the world”, he assured.
