Innscor staff complain

Innscor workers here have accused their top managers of living luxurious lives and earning outrageous salaries while workers earn less than $400 a month. Over the past two weeks The Zimbabwean has received anonymous e-mails from disgruntled workers complaining about ill-treatment.

“Our bosses are living in luxury, earning salaries ranging from $8,000 to $20,000 per month but paying most employees less than $400. Those who raise their voices to complain are thoroughly audited and sent packing,” alleged one of the messages.

The company’s southern region managing director, Warren Meares, said he did not want to dignify the allegations by commenting on the issue.

“These are all lies. As a managing director, I am not even earning half the amount you are talking about. I do not think it is worth our comment because there is no story to write about,” said Meares, who even volunteered to show this reporter his pay slip.

He said according to the National Employment Council for the food industry, the lowest paid worker earns $280. Innscor, which runs several fast food outlets around the country, employs more than 1,000 people in Bulawayo.
