mm......looking at it from another angle......Ever wondered how hard we workto fill our life with luxuries that we hardly have time to enjoy. LOOK AT IT THIS WAY... The luxury Cars, Toyotas, Land Cruisers, Rav 4's, Mercedes; that are parked 8 hoursdriven 30 min to the office and 30 minutes back home 5 days out of 7 ( i.e.5 out of 168 hours in a week).... And whilst we sit on a not-so-comfortable chair in a small room called an officeyour Mansion lies idle with only the House Girl enjoying herself to the 'bacon and egg breakfast' relaxing on that very expensive leather sofa that we only sit on when weget home... and being so tired we just doze off. When she is tired of work she takesa breakand turns on the Plasma TV and spoils herself with the fully subscribed DSTV,of course if she feels bored she can always turn on that brand name HiFiand swing a bit...... And whilst all that is happening where are you?... you are eating chips funga for lunch as you are still servicing the various loans that enabled get your property ... and oh by the way there was no breakfast really, just a cup of tea and afew slices of bread. Every moment you pray that it could just get to 5 pm so that you can drive home and join.... the House Girl!! (Poor you!). So this is your miserable lot for the restof your working life...by the time you retire you'll have no pleasure in any of the things you invested in... .... SO MY QUESTION IS... WHO IS ENJOYING THE FRUITS OF YOUR LABOUR ... YOU OR YOUR HOUSE GIRL? And now!!! they want a raise coz they heard on MY TV and radio that the minimum wage is 6,000/=. Does she know that is5% of my salary ( kwa sisi waajiriwa wa serikali?) Salary I earn after some solid years of school. Minimum wage my foot! Before I raise your salary, please update your resume,and attach; 1. A secondary school certificate can do but having a degree will be an added advantage 2.
