Labour was the primary value, the unique purchase-money that was paid for all issues!
Whereas, not solely has the Labor of our heroes previous been in useless because of the extreme looting of their
pensions and arrears making them liabilities for his or her youngsters, their households and society at giant; the
unemployment, the poor labor welfare, the fraudulent staffing/recruitment system, the underpayment
and plenty of anti-labor insurance policies makes Nigerias present heroes probably the most unappreciated workforce in
The tenets of fairness and the great thing about labor is properly encapsulated by Karl Marx in his quote ” For every
in keeping with his capacity, to every in keeping with his wants.”
How then will we serve with coronary heart and may when it’s obtrusive that our labors can be in useless? When
staff neither will get rewarded in keeping with capacity nor wants. How?
The excessive price of emigration and mind drain in Nigeria’s work drive is a testomony of how underpaid and
maltreated our labor drive more and more turns into by the day.
Based on Voltaire, Work retains at bay three nice evils: boredom, vice, and want; thus, any pragmatic
authorities can be focused on staff welfare to curb vices and encourage participation in Nation
However then as a Nation our management is unintentional and our illustration non soliciting. The Nigerian
employee have been trampled upon, battered, dejected, used, and molested in methods unimaginable
whereas no one selflessly stood up for the Nigerian employee in time of dire want and second of
We failed to understand that the effectiveness of our workforce both publicly or privately would decide
how productive and progressive we intend to turn into as a Nation.
Younger professionals are leaving in droves as a result of the whole lot in Nigeria will kill you, however then It is
clearly not information that our meritocracy locations competent and clever staff under common
staff who’ve political connections or can be able to pay for promotion in form.
In step with the passage of the #NewMinimumwage The intentional refusal to advertise competent
graduate and staff past entry stage worker below the guise of contract workers is fraudulent and a
bane to human capital growth making it arduous to successfully implement the brand new minimal wage.
The act of continuous extortion of labor and plenty of anti-labor practices MUST cease earlier than staff actually
admire the great thing about staff day as a second of reflecting on the various sacrifices made to make sure
that work will get finished in transferring Nigeria ahead regardless of the various untold challenges. Our staff
are certainly heroes whose labor we should guarantee by no means go in useless.
How extra denigrating is it going to be when foreigners deal with our staff as slaves in our personal nation,
whereas authorities whose responsibility is to guard the curiosity of the residents and guarantee high quality welfare that
reduces unemployment price look the opposite manner in trade for bribes and profit.
What regulation protects the Nigerian employee? how diligently is it applied? These and plenty of different obtrusive
causes negates our Nationwide creed. Our labors are toiling in useless, maltreated first by the federal government
with non fee of salaries, the personal sector by fraudulently shortchanging staff, and overseas
corporations particularly these run by India’s and Taiwanese confidently maltreating staff with out worry
The Nigerian employee is overworked and underpaid. Job safety shouldn’t be an excellent lexicon for the Nigeria
employee who is consistently in seek for greener pasture; whose authorities have failed over time and
whose society locations so many expectations upon.
The Nigerian employee is my HERO, her effort is geared in the direction of advancing our nation and offering for
the household. The Nigerian employee deserves the most effective!
In celebrating the resilience and doggedness of the Nigerian employee regardless of all odds, it is necessary that
we make calls for, calls for which are clear and inside the whims of our constitutional proper that the
welfare of staff turns into prioritized for it was not by gold or by silver, however by Labour, that every one wealth
of the world was initially bought.
Comfortable Employees Day to Nigeria Salient heroes!
