The workers in various parastatals in Enugu State have expressed their dissatisfaction over non implementation of the new minimum wage by the State government.

The approved thirty thousand (N30, 000) naira new minimum wage for Nigerian workers took effect in Enugu state since 2020, but it is only enjoyed by their counterparts in the ministries.

The parastatal workers who occupy over 60 percent of Enugu State workforce, turned out en-mass for the 2022 May Day celebration otherwise known as workers day.

They appeared in black-and-black outfit to demonstrate their grievances over the non payment of the new minimum wage and other incentives.

They said during the COVID-19 era, the parastatal workers were faced with too many challenges as they were asked to continue their duties, while those of them in the ministries were asked to work from home.

The ministry staff were paid in full during the COVID-19 era even their minimum wage, while their counterparts in the parastatals were abandoned.

Tagged "Black May Day for workers in the parastatals in Enugu" the workers who wore gloomy faces, lamented high cost of commodities in the market, hence the need for the government to be sensitive to their plight.

They pleaded with governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to as a matter of importance and urgency approve the payment of the new minimum wage for parastatals in order to give them succour.

The theme of this year's workers' day is "Labour politics and the quest for good governance and development in Nigeria"
