FACTORY WORKERS FACE BLEAK FESTIVE SEASON

Maseru, Nov 19 – Textile factory workers face a bleak festive season due to massive job losses in the textile industry as new orders are dwindling with little hope for mainly youth and women who are seen hustling in the streets trying to make ends meet.

One of former Nien Hsing International at Ha Thetsane Mrs. Makhethang Pule in her mid-40s a widow with two children told the Agency that this festive season is meaningless to her family as she has no money to buy necessities she used to buy for her family while still employed.

Mrs. Pule said they were promised that they would be recalled in no time when they were retrenched but weeks, months and years are passing by with nothing coming.

“We have lost hope and appeal to the Government to intervene by bringing new investors so that the closed textile factories could be reopened so that new jobs could be created’ she lamented.
