Zimbabwean workers struggle after July 2015


July 17th will go down Zimbabwe’s history as one of the worst day for Zimbabwe’s workforce. Almost 20 000 Zimbabwean workers lost their jobs in a space of 3 months after a Supreme Court judgement that gave permission to companies to dismiss workers without benefits after a three months notice. An outcry from the public and Labour Unions resulted in the government initiating a process to ammend the Labour Act. During the 2016 Workers Day Celebrations, Zimbabweans expressed their views on what they would have wanted included in the changes.
