The PWDs are not happy about the mistreatment they have suffered at the behest of the government since the announcement was made to Parliament on Wednesday, November 17, 2021.
According to the PWDs, the way and manner their dismissal was announced by the Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwesi Amoako Atta in a release last night was demeaning.
‘Many of the PWDs who spoke with Accra 100.5 FM’s reporters on the mid-day news said the government owes them.
They said their salaries have been in arrears for the past three months.
They contended that salary for the month of September was paid in the second week of November.
