Government Should Pay Teachers And Other School Working Officers Half Salary Till They Resume – Lawyer Maurice Ampaw
A crucial suggestion made by Lawyer Maurice Ampaw on Wuntumi TV and Radio Channels during one on one live interview to the government of Ghana brought out issues naked to teaching and non teaching bodies to receive half salary from April ending till they resume at post. His concern for this suggestion is to help government organise funds to fight against COVID-19.
He lamented that all is sacrificing to fight against COVID -19. Why should government pay workers fully whilst they are on break?
He condemned the idea of such workers for thinking they were sent home by the government and are entitled to the usual working conditions. He quizzed; who wish to have this unfortunate era? Business people are asked to lockdown. How can they fund their homes and families?
Further to his speeches, he said since we are in an unusual situation, none should think of entitlement from the government.
He finally advised every worker whether on break or on duty to readjust to suit to this situation. “Ghana would go or experience financial crisis this year as well as food, extra care must be taken” says Lawyer Maurice Ampaw.
