Employer and employee

Jim Tuimoce, Suva
Monday, May 30, 2016

I WOULD like to reply to Mr Singh's comment regarding the wage rate. Let's put it this way, if a gardener is to be paid $4 an hour, his employer is forking out extra bucks to pay him.

What about the employer himself?

Has he got any increment?

The result would be to ask the gardener to stop work.

Gardener goes around looking for work but can't find one since it's expensive for employers to pay them.

No job, no money.

A time will come when we need to increase this rate.

One should remember, everybody can get experience, not everybody can get qualification. We all understand that everybody needs to earn to survive.

Just think outside the box as well.
