The National Communication Officer for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has said that, one major aim of the NDC government if it is voted back to power, is to ensure employment for all.
The coming NDC government he said, will do this by providing enough sustainable jobs that pay well in order for workers to be able to provide themselves the basic necessities of life.
“We are committed to the creation of sustainable jobs for Ghanaians because we are fully aware that youth of Ghana deserve decent employment to be able to afford a decent living for themselves and family. This is what informed the theme of the people’s manifesto “JOBS AND PROSPERITY FOR ALL,” he remarked.
He continued that, the NDC will pass the first of its kind in our nation’s history, an employment to provide a comprehensive arrangement for job creation and labor market statistics.
“To ensure this demand for Ghanaian goods and services, the next NDC government will create a 3-shift economy, especially in manufacturing and other high-end services, which operates 24 hours non-stop hence, the additional two shifts will be a source of additional employment.
“Companies that currently operate 24 hours with only two shift of 12 hours each in violation of the labor law will be required to run three shifts and so, create a third stream of jobs. Decentralise and convert the Labor Office into the National Employment Bureau equipped with state of the art facilities and Grant tax waivers to employers who employ workers through the Bureau,” he added.
