NLC and TUC Stage Nationwide Protest over Minimum Wage
Following proposals to reform the national minimum wage act, members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have staged a nationwide strike.
Since a bill to transfer the national minimum wage from the exclusive list to the concurrent list passed second reading in the House of Representatives, the demonstration erupted.
Honourable Garba Mohammed of the Sabon Gari Federal Constituency in Kaduna State is the bill’s sponsor.
Staff with placards that read “On National Minimum Wage We Stand,” “No to Minimum Wage on Concurrent List,” and “Yes to Minimum Wage on Exclusive List” protested in various states across the world.
Here are few pictures from the nationwide protest:
