Zimbabwe Broadcasting Holdings Key Developments

Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corp Fires About 300 Employees

Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corp. has fired about 300 employees. The cuts represent one-third of its staff and come as the government seeks to cut its wage costs. The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions said about 20,000 people have been sacked since a Supreme Court ruling in July allowed companies to dismiss employees without benefits with three-months notice. The government has said it wants to take a 40% cut out of its wage bill, which consumes about 80% of its revenues.
