Re: complains concerning payment-
I feeling that this company is just exploiting us because i dont understand how you can work for a week and get R181-00, how do you pay your workers and how do you maintain your bakkie. I feel we have to be paid per book because last week we delivered at a company 194 books and we still get paid R4.60, i believe this is highly unreasonable. They also deal with their address list, we get companies and they have already been delivered to, why aren't such things dealt with before they are given out, if this is the case we should be paid in full not the confirmation price because its the company's mistake. You should also deal with your staff because their attitudes are uncalled for. This is to the ALBERTON-ALRODE BRANCH.
