They told Chronicle the lowest paid was getting about $3 000 monthly, about US$36. At around 7pm yesterday, the workers were singing and chanting slogans and vowed to sleep at the premises until their grievances are addressed.

Southern Region Workers chairperson Mr Sihawuliso Ndutshwa said employees were incapacitated.
