N18k no longer realistic as minimum wage - NLC boss

NLC Chairman, Comrade Ayuba Waba has called on the Nigerian government to increase the minimum wage of workers from N18,000, saying the old minimum wage was no longer realistic in the face of the increasing exchange rate. Speaking after a meeting with Senate President Bukola Saraki, Comrade Waba said the NLC intends to submit a new minimum wage demand to the National Assembly. He added that as at the time when the wages of workers was increased to N18,000, the exchange rate was about N140 but with the new exchange rate, the value of the N18,000 minimum wage had decreased.

Yet they weren't even able to realize that in all states. Most countries are moving away from their original minimum wage while we're still here debating on how realistic our meagre one is.

I'm sure they know the cost of renting a house, and also paying tuition fees for kids, excluding feeding and other necessities. Wisdom is profitable to direct.

We hear of billion of Naira and dollars of Government money (our money) being stolen from almost everywhere in the country and we still dey deceive ourselves with minimum wage disgrace of N18k. Will heavens fall if N1million was given to every Nigerian citizen to at least compensate for the rubbish governance over these past decades? After all, it will amount to a paltry N170 million. Just saying oh!

Henry Eze, this shows u're not just an illiterate but a very foolish one. Don't worry child, u'll grow up soon, get married, and have children and then u'll cater for them with 18k or better still, go into ur so called business, lemme know how u'll make it without the minimum wagers contribution. Mkpi awusa.
