ZCTU Secretary Urges Finance Minister To Integrate Employment Into The Budget

ZCTU Secretary Urges Finance Minister To Integrate Employment Into The Budget

The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) has urged Finance and Economic Development Minister, Mthuli Ncube to consider integrating employment into the budget.

ZCTU speaks as the unemployment rate is continuously rising in Zimbabwe as the local industry is collapsed. 

Presenting the post-Mid-Term Budget Review analysis this week, ZCTU secretary general, Japhet Moyo told that the treasury boss ought to depart from the routine budgeting processes, which are silent on job creation. Moyo said:

In line with international best practices, the country must adopt a pro-employment budgeting framework which integrates and mainstreams an employment perspective in planning and budgeting process.

Under this framework, the Public Service and Labour Ministry must have adequate fiscal resources and capacity to implement labour market policies and to coordinate the implementation of a national employment policy and strategies with key productive ministries such as the Agriculture and Industry ministries, among others.

Moyo argued that the bulk of Ncube’s interventions over the past years have not done enough in dealing with socio-economic ills such as unemployment and poverty thereby leaving the majority of the citizens vulnerable to the impacts of inflation.

The most nonsense people in this country are Mthuli and ED. Their approach of development is long winded and outdated. They thought we eat buildings, poor roads and propaganda. Nothing will sustain a hungry man than food. Give us food and see if we are going to damage everything you are busy building. We want to work in our own notto depend on you.
