Livingstone lodge lays off workers due to minimum wage

Livingstone Tourism Association (LTA) says the revision  of the minimum wage has already started having negative impacts barely two days after it was announced.

LTA Chairperson, Kingsley Lilamono says a named lodge is already laying off 10 of its employees as the wage bill has increased.

Mr. Lilamono says the business community is not sure if it can sustain business by the end of the year.

He said people have to make adjustments with the back dated revised increase by 4th July.

Mr. Lilamono further said the revised minimum wage has consequences in which a lot of people will lose their jobs and that they will be a lot of people on the streets without employment.
