Who does flirt with Slavery in Jordan?
It feels really upsetting watching all the central efforts of the responsible government of Jordan towards modernization and better general conditions in workers' rights and daily life standards, finding a crashing obstacle on the imperial behaviors of unthoughtful managers, directors or, even business owners.
This is the story that came to my knowledge in reliable details.
The General Manager of M...com, a company of courier services, discovered a broken glass in the trash bin of the company. Directly he threatened all the employees with immediate dismissal. Second thoughts pushed him to reconsider (probably thinking of the cost of compensations). He delivered a warning letter to each and all. Moreover he decided to impose a fine upon all employees for the broken glass and to force them to sign a certifying letter that in case they get a training course and decide to leave, or get fired, they will be obliged to pay the gross amount of five thousands (5,000) J.D., a sum that exceeds for most of them the annual revenues from their salaries.
Is it acceptable to impose a regime of horror above the desks and the daily tasks of people who try to make in an honorable way their living? Does the post of the General Manager or the status of owner allow the frustration that these young people experience in their effort to produce wealth for the company and build up some experience for their future?
For me that Jordan is a beloved second home, I TOTALLY REFUTE THE IDEA. PLEASE TAKE ACTION AND PROTECT THE DIGNITY OF WORKING PEOPLE.
