The Trade Union Congress (TUC) General Secretary, Dr. Yaw Baah, is quoted to have said recently that workers should exercise cool heads as Labour negotiates with the government to ensure that workers are properly cushioned in the wake of the partial lockdown leading to slow economic activities.

Besides, government also needs to put in place mechanisms to cushion employers and for that matter businesses, in general, to stay afloat even in Post–COVID-19.

In all of this, some workers are appealing to President Akufo-Addo to completely waive taxes on their salaries in view of the hike in prices of food and basic needs and the continuous hardship brought to bear on families as a result of those who are home without earnings, as these people have become a burden on their families and many are afraid the situation could grow precarious if nothing is done soonest.
