The issue of salaries for employees of Workers Welfare Board (WWB) was raised by Awami National Party Senator Sitara Ayaz on Saturday.
“It is unjust that WWB employees have not been paid their salaries, despite protests outside Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan’s residence in Bani Gala, Islamabad,” a press statement quoted the senator as saying.
“It has been two months since the employees have been protesting.”
She said some of the employees were fired while salaries of others were withheld, and that needs to be fixed now, she demanded.
“Around 3,000 employees have been left without an income,” she said, adding that instead of providing employment to the jobless youth, the PTI-led government has rendered more people jobless, increasing the crime rate across the province.
Ayaz has demanded the government resolve the matter on a priority basis.
