Business owners that do not pay there staff

Postby Disappointed Employee » 11th November 2012, 20:28

Dear Zambia,

I just want the people in Zambia to know that thy must be very careful who thy work for, as there is people (white) that have several businesses in Zambia, there bank accounts get loaded, thy go on holidays , stay in luxury places, eat of the best food you can think of but thy do not pay there staff there wages at the end of the month, there is some staff that have to wait for 3 to six month to get money from the owners.

Please report these people to you labor department, go to you radio stations news papers, Tv all the media that you can think of, stop then in there tracks, thy do not deserve to have any businesses in Zambia........ I know what I am talking of because I am from another country that work in Zambia,Kitwe for such a person and still waiting for my hard earned money.

Not too long ago, i called an acqaintance of mine on her mobile phone AFTER WORKING HOURS, when she answered the phone she told me that she was at her new LIVE IN WORK PLACE.
She told me she had started working for a lebanese family in lusaka as a live in maid for 450 pini per month

Upon hearing that i adivised her to quit immediately and find something better than working for such people. Before i could finish the sentence, one of the kids from the family walked in her room and started hurling insults at her, while i listen on the other end...." what do you think you are f*ckin doing answering the phone in here.. are you st*pid or something.."

The boys voice sounded as if he was btween 8-10yrs old.. my acquaintance is 38yrs old Zambian woman.

still shocked at what i had just heard i told her i would call her on the weekend.. she later told me that she was not allowed to wear good clothes around the house, just chitenge's and a head scarf. The lebanese wives are very insecure and jealous of good looking Zambian maids, so they treat them very very bad and teach their children to do the same. As if insulting the maid would stop their promsicuous husbands from going after beautiful Zambian women

Problem is most Zambian workers dont know their rights. They would rather take the insults than lose a job. Slowly slowy though, word is going around about reporting bad foreigners who are abusing vulnerable citizens. Slowly but sure Zambians are waking up!!

I’m inclined to believe that you have added a lot of spice to your story.

But if your story is as you tell it, you should go to that acquaintance of yours, drug her by the ear and pump some sense into her head. Those Lebanese dogs will break her spirit. Working for such animals is like selling your soul to the devil. Ain’t worth it.
