These workers told GhanaWeb they are unhappy with the GH¢20 they receive as their daily wages and GH¢1 allowance they receive for scaffolding

Out of the meagre amount they receive, they are taxed. Also, anyone who takes a break while at post gets a lesser amount as the 1-hour break is also deducted from the GH¢20 they receive.

They also bemoaned the unavailability of health insurance cover on them despite how risky their job is.

These demonstrators told GhanaWeb that failure for government to intervene in their situation will lead to a road block in the coming days which may be extended to 2 months.

Meanwhile, police officers have been deployed to the scene to calm down the situation as well as ease the traffic congestion.
