Kenyan Employers Stay Put Despite Strike Threat

Kenyan employers are not prepared to give in to demands for 60% minimum wage increase. The chairman of the Kenya private sector alliance Patrick Obath says the demand is simply impossible under the current economic situation.

The workers Union-COTU has warned of a major industrial strike if the government does not honour its demand and announce the wage increase on labor day next week. COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli says their wages are way too low in the face of increasing cost of living.
