Those garlic smelling motherfuckers.Blame the Government.NLC with an incompetent leadership of Omar is only concern with politics.They have not been able to properly perform their oversight duties.This are the areas they should sponsor bills for the National house of Assembly to debate and passed into law.
Most of the people appointed to head some of this parastatals don't know their responsibility.You can imagine how these Indians some of who have criminal records find their way to Nigeria and heading big Organizations.I pity of Nigeria my Country.

These guys are crook, when they did their customer loyalty programme thay allows subscribers win prizes according to credit usage. when it was time for us to claim our prizes they came up with the story that they ran out of stock since then i have been suspecting them.

Indians don't care, they treat their employees like poo even in their native home. Once they know a country is lax in it's labour laws, then they take advantage of that. Can Mittal Steel do that to it's employees in the UK? No, they would sue the company that it would go bankrupt. If only the Nigerian Government cares about the plight of its citizens, then life would have been much better.
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by clubone05: 8:42pm On May 12, 2011|
the number one problem of Nigerian, ALWAYS WAITING,waiting for govt,waiting for NLC,waiting for NCC,no country that has ever progressed waited for anything, down tools, take them to court, protest, organize, fight, stop complaining,

Taking up a job in an Indian company is good for a fresh graduate.It gives one a good headstart and relevant experience and exposure for future employment especially nothing better is forthcoming.It is better than staying idle.
However, the maximum period one should spend with them is 1 year. After 1 year, you should move on whether you have gotten another job or not and try your hands on something. Throw their jobs right in their face. Graduates who remain in such companies are such as may not really be able to get better jobs elsewhere either because of poor University grades or unpopular/unattractive courses of study.
In my case, I joined an Indian company 4 months after I passed out of NYSC. Pay was 20k at first and after 3 months of probation, I was one of the "lucky 4" confirmed. Pay was then increased to 35k.Actual take home was 31k after pension and tax had been deducted.
I started looking for better employment from day 1. I wrote aptiude tests from time to time to get another job but none materialized at the time.On an occasion, I missed a aptitude test because of the job.
10 months after getting the job, I resigned via yahoo mail sent to my technical manager and call coordinator at about 11:40pm.We had just be paid earlier in the day as it was the last day of the month.The Indians didnt see me again and even though the technical manager told/implored me to come and see him in person, I shunned him.
I learnt a lot of useful things during by brief stay, I must confess and it has enhanced my CV. But the 10 months looked like 10 years.Some of my senior colleagues were school cert holders and were doing part time.We got to know that anybody could be employed so long as you have a little science/technical knowledge and skill and you could speak English.
By the grace of God, I will land a good job very soon.At the moment, I am doing my own thing and I'm not doing badly financially to the glory of God.
My close friend with whom we started together also left and after some months landed a bank job. Today, he is doing good. We were 10 fresh graduates employed at the same time.I think only 5 remain.

God Save Nigeria!!!
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by lagcity(m): 1:19am On May 13, 2011|
the only way to nip this in the bud is to embarass the company through peaceful protest at the workplace. let nobody wait for NLC or NCC or KFC If majority of the employees go along with it, there'll be success. but if a few bunch try it, na sack letter ooo. you go hear weeeen! na wah for this indians oooo. actually a lot of them still have that caste mentality and view blacks as subhuman. for them to treat you right, you have to teach them. SO TEACH THEM!
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by lastpage: 1:34am On May 13, 2011|
NLC was f*ucked from the day Oshiomole and Reuben Abatti were reputed to have collected Bribe and Parcel of Land (at Abuja), from OBJ, to scuttle the incessant fuel price increase protest, back then.
It was OSHIOMOLE in prticular, that killed Nig. Labour Congress, just to advance his selfish interest in politics. End of story.
What we now have are opportunist masquerading as Labour Leaders.
Thats where lies the problem.
@Airtel Workers: Send a petition to the House of Rep/Senate, Follow it up with a Peaceful Protest at the Gates of the NASS.
Document the exploitations (Spy Cameras, et all) and let a TV station do a documentary with it. Give them a tough "negative Publicity" and you might swing public opinion in your favor.
Well, that is if you're not like the typical Nigerian that wants others o fight their battle for them while they stay at home seeping coffee
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by raycomray: 6:08am On May 13, 2011|
As an employer of labor, I have found out that most Nigerians are lousy. All they want is to work less and earn a fat "SALAD"
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by AdamuW: 8:16am On May 13, 2011|
There’s no point blaming the Indians. There’s no point and it‘s too easy. This is not really about race. It’s about finance, power and self respect. It’s us. Who’s country are they in? If we have and enforce the right regulations and care for the welfare of Nigerian workers then Indians, Chinese, English, Lebanese, American and of course NIGERIAN companies can’t get away with bad practice. But if we Nigerians don’t respect and take care of ourselves why the hell do you expect someone else to? This is a complex issue which has many sides but for me that’s the core problem.
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by AjanleKoko: 8:50am On May 13, 2011|
I think this story refers to contract staff employed in the call center. Not confirmed staff.
Confirmed staff aren't employed by any agency.
raycomray:You're probably right.
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by twinstaiye(m): 10:20am On May 13, 2011|
At least this got me thinking seriously whether i should still continue to use anything Airtel in this country.

You made great sense.
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by lagerwhenindoubt(m): 4:54pm On May 13, 2011|
Way to go! I thought i was the only one who considers Oshiomole a traitor to the mandate of the masses

Too bad, i think nigeria labour congress should be called upon to check this
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by atam_boy(m): 6:59pm On May 13, 2011|
I don't think there is a lot that the NLC and/or the TUC can do about this matter. The ball is in the court of those dimwits in the National Assembly. Pls don't hold onto any hope, they incapable of anything good for this country.Talking about Oshimole or in deed any other person is a waste of time. The Indians are busy metting untold suffering on their fellow Indians in the UK, even though the UK is a more proactive country in such matters.
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by Onye Babe(f): 9:55pm On May 13, 2011|
Seriously, it is a case of demand and supply. If they don't want the job they should leave, 7hrs per day and three days off at N75,000, are u kidding me? They were having a ball now the terms have changed to match the requirements of the job. In India, the same applies so they are not miss treating anybody. Mind you most of the customer service agents I have ever spoken to, are either rude or incapable of answering my questions. There are many Nigerians that would do the job for less than N30,000. As for firing pregnant women, if it actually happened, that is wrong but it depends on the law.
Come on people, too much sentiments, we need to be realistic. In most cases, companies would just sack most of them and restructure to make the company more efficient.
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by achinu(m): 12:01am On May 14, 2011|
This only reason companies both locally owned & multinational continue to abuse their employees is because of the freaking lack of governance in 9ja. There are labor laws in place, maybe somewhat. But in a land where the government has their heads stuck so far up their asses to perform, employers end up having a field day.
As for SPANCO, they probably don't give a ish cuz they understand the mindset of the nigerian government that nobody from the govt will give a rat-Bottom about what happens to their citizens. Like they say, when in Rome act a Roman. But in Nigerian, it more like when in 9ja, Bleep them as hard as you can cuz you can get away with it SMH
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by allycat: 2:11pm On May 14, 2011|
I went to an India last year and there the staff work 10 hours a day for 6 days a week wether day or night. These guys are not treating us like slaves, that is how they work in their own country. The problem is that the Nigerian system is upside down such that we have graduates working in call centres or as tellers in banks. These jobs in other countries are handled by high school graduates that is school cert holders. But here the average person with school cert cannot aspire to such lofty positions
In Nigeria we have engineering graduates struggling for the job that abroad technicians do and then complaining when they are offered the salary of a technician. We have to get our act together and stop expecting others to come and give us hand outs.
If Nigerians had handled NITEL well or even ECONET would there have been any space for the Indians to come in.
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by allycat: 2:18pm On May 14, 2011|
By the way how much do Nigerian private schools pay teachers, graduates?? Or for that matter what salary do you expect to get as a fresh graduate in the civil service or in an idigenous private firm?? Or young lawyers in a private Nigerian law firm. If the answer to this is more than what the Indians are offering then you have every right to complain.
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by Ib(f): 2:31pm On May 14, 2011|
See, is working for a Nigerian any better?
I worked for them and they would not pay on time, the working conditions are terrible, you never know if you will be sacked the next day! every month is story, No policies followed. Every month the owner changes salaries as he likes, he sleeps with his staff at random and the favoured girl of the month talks to her superior anyhow and is promoted without justice. One month pay turns to 2 months, its insane.
So when the indians come and see that even our own people treat us like poo, why won't they have the mind to do the same?after all what is good for the goose is good for the gander.
Sometimes i wonder! if only all the people who fill up all the crusades on lagos/ibadan express can actually open what the Bible says, Nigeria would be so much better.
So don't blame the indians, We allowed the world to see us finish.
|Re: Airtel’s Slave Yard by twinstaiye(m): 10:57am On May 15, 2011|
Onye Babe:That opinions aint fair. Working in abuja is expensive, 75k is not much, Most of them are graduates, taking up such jobs because of the situation in the country.
