Here Is What Zimbabwe Mine Workers Are Receiving As Bonuses
In a rather sad and chastening development, one of the biggest mining companies in Zimbabwe is giving its workers 2 (two) bottles of soft drinks as a bonus for the great productivity attained last month.
iHarare has learned that the management at Renco Mine in Masvingo was so pleased with the high production volumes attained in the month of June that it has offered all its workers a ‘token of appreciation.’ The workers are each being given two 300 ml bottles of soft drinks as a token of appreciation by the company which is 100% owned by RioZim Limited.
According to a notice from the Renco Mine Management all the workers were directed to bring two empty bottles to allow them to collect their share of the token of appreciation.
Below is the notice from the company which iHarare is publishing in full below,
TO: ALL EMPLOYEES
FROM: RENCO MINE MANAGEMENT
PLEASE BE ADVISED TO COLLECT 2 X 300ML SOFT DRINKS TODAY (14/07/20) AS A TOKEN OF APPRECIATION FOR THE GOOD PRODUCTION ACHIEVED IN THE MONTH OF JUNE.
THE TIME OF COLLECTION IS FROM 1400HOURS GRADE 11+ (PERMANENT & CONTRACTORS) – BANGALA CLUB
GRADE 1-10 MINE NO 13 – 2309 – MARAMBA CLUB MINE NO 2310-9133, CONTRACTORS AND STUDENTS – MANYANGA
NB: PLEASE BRING EMPTY BOTTLES UPON COLLECTION.
Unsurprisingly, the company’s token of appreciation did not go down well with many Zimbabweans on social media who felt that the Renco Mine Management was taking advantage of its workers. Soft drinks are currently retailing for an equivalent of between US$0.25 (25 cents) and US$0.50 (50 cents), between R4 and R8.
Below are some reactions from social media,

Since the time one of my clients wanted to duck a payment because he had bought me and my team pizza for lunch I have realized how companies and many people use food to avoid fair payments. I don’t take any food from these people anymore

Give them money I’m sure they are more than capable of buying their own soft sinks if they wish. Nonsense!!!!

This is how the capitalism system works. Very exploitative and selfish. They get real profits and the worker is given cosmetic non essential compensation
