A number of people are on strike for a 15% wage increment. Are you taking part in the street demos? Or you are siting a home waiting for that announcement which tells you its ceasefire go back to work.
What if it takes 5 months like the platinum strike? What if it takes more than that? Have you imagined how you will make your ends meet? You do not just have to wait for the news you need to do something! This is the time you can use to learn a new skill, or start a small home business.
This is not the time to follow and comment on the many useless social pages that cost you your time and your money. be productive. This is not the time to watch all the soccer repeats,it is time for for personal productivity.
There are times when the job gets so tough you are prepared to leave. there are times when it takes so long you are tired of doing it. there are times when you are told you are not pushing enough, yet you are stretching yourself to the max. ….
But you still hang on because you are an artisan and you love being one.
If this was back at work i was going for a disciplinary hearing. Something has been cooking. For the full details check this email I have written to a few colleagues.
In Zimbabwe artisans need to do their own bargaining as artisans. An artisan is an artisan regardless of the industry he/she works in. Whether one is in the metal,chemical or miners’union is irrelevant and a way of trying to suppress wages.
When training there was no training specifically meant for the mines, fertilizer or automotive. Fitting is the same at Sables, Uniliver or Mimosa. A DPF does the same job at Barzem ,or Hwange. The minimum must be the same then companies may adjust up considering the extra dangers that may be faced in particular industries.
Coming from a chemical industry background I was earning more as a 4th year apprentice than a qualified artisan at DC de Souza.
The wages must not be meagre but must match the highest currently being offered. An artisan must get what they deserve whether in government or in the private sector. No more government rates because government doesn’t regulate my landlord. Government doesn’t regulate the prices I am charged so I must get what is worth of me
I have been attending success workshops and self improvement seminars and I guarantee you I have learnt a lot. One thing I have learnt is if you are not achieving something you want,it is because you do not know how.
To know how ,you have to learn. One thing that I have been complacent about is learning. I thought learning is studying for a diploma or degree.
You learn how to achieve success,how to be financially free,how to better take care of your family and yourself.
You learn how to manage your finance, improve your cash flows, get out of debt. I have been learning all this and I tell you I am no longer the same.
Now if you feel you want to succeed, change the way you do things. I have 5 free tickets if you want to learn about the things I mentioned above among other. These tickets can be used on the weekend 7&8 September.
