All Shoprite striking workers have been fired with immediate effect for failing to heed to the Zambian government appeal to go back to work.
According to a statement released by Shoprite management, all the workers should now re-apply for their jobs as they have been dismissed.
The workers are demanding that Shoprite implements the government minimum wage, which many companies complained against when it was implemented.
The workers are probably trying to reach to some bare levels of survival after president Michael Sata himself has so far been increasing his salary for being bed-ridden inside State House for two years now.
Mr. Sata is also building his retirement mansion even before he does half his term of office.
