70% of employees working under deplorable conditions – Survey

Over 70 percent of employees in Ghana work under very deplorable and vulnerable conditions, according to a report by the National Development Planning Commission, (NDPC), and the British Council.

The report also revealed that the welfare of most workers in the country is less of a priority for most employers.

The report also blamed government partly for the low productivity in especially public institutions because the structures to ensure decent work with favourable working conditions have been broken for long.

At the launch of the report in Accra, the Director General of the NDPC and an economic advisor to the President, Dr Nii Moi Thompson said the Commission will study the gaps identified in the report critically and work towards bridging them.
