The Organizing Secretary for Kenya National Plantation Agricultural Workers Union Henry Omasire has expressed his disappointment towards the Jubilee government for failing to fulfil their promise of easing and dealing with the high living standards of employees since the year 2014.
While addressing public servants at Labour day celebrations in Nandi hills, Omasire accused the same government of hiking prices of basic commodities, which majority of employees cannot afford because their income per capita is far much below the line.
He noted that the cost of living is very unbearable as consumables like bread, Unga and sugar among other things are sold at a high cost.
Earlier on, the workers union had demanded at least 22% increase in minimum wage to at least improve the living standards of employees. President Uhuru Kenyatta announced an 18% minimum wage increment on Labour day to ease the cost of living.
