But to be fair, can what the so-called business owners pay to hold waters for their employees….can they survive on that salary/wage scale themselves….minus wife and kids, don’t let mention school fees, light bills, feeding, transport etc…I’m just talking about meeting the basic human needs of food, clothing and shelter.
