The pains inflicted on Nigerian workers by the present economic challenges occasioned by fuel subsidy removal and inflation had worsened.
Nigerian Labour leaders raised the alarm on Monday at the opening ceremony of the 28th annual national management/industrial relations seminar, held in Ilọrin, the Kwara State capital.
According to them, the cost of transportation has skyrocketed while food prices have soared astronomically.
The event was themed “Creative and Innovative Strategies To Manage Workers Expectations and Reality In a Challenging Economy”.
The National President of the Chemical and Non-Metallic Products Senior Staff Association of Nigerian (CANMPSSAN), Comrade Segun David said “The take-home of every worker cannot take them to the company gate.”
He urged the government to improve the welfare of the Nigerian workers given the challenging situation.
David advised Nigerian workers to strategise on how to manage expectations as incomes were dwindling and rising inflation occasioned by removal of subsidy.
