So a petroleum Engineer is molding blocks and earning 100 cedis let's celebrate that? This is just human resource wasting because the one you're paying tax to is buying cars and houses for slay queens. You lot accept mediocrity too much!

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a young Ghanaian man has recently granted an interview with Citi Newsroom and revealed that although he has been jobless for a year now, taking anything less than Ghc2000 as salary is out of the question.
The bold young man, whose name was not disclosed, made this statement at the just ended Youth Employment Agency (YEA) job fair held at the Accra international conference centre from Thursday, September 9, 2021, to Friday, September 10, 2021.
According to the man, he will reject a monthly salary lower than Ghc2000 because he has an Information Technology (IT) background, and with his skills and certifications, he expects better pay.
