Bono-Ahafo radio station owners must sit up, they need to brand their stations as well as their workers well to have peace of mind to work.
Most of these presenters and workers wake up as early as 4 am while others close from work at midnight. As a result of bad treatment by owners and managers it has resulted in them into series of borrowing, they owned almost all the well to do people in their vicinity.
It’s very disturbing to see how radio presenters and workers are in this region are suffering, an insufficient allowance at the end of the month others nothing at all.
Most of the guys are workaholics while others have the job at their heart as a result owner and management have taken advantage of their weaknesses and cheating them, forgetting they are the people who have to make the station stands on its feet but are not treated well.
Owners and managers look down upon their workers, they can improve the working conditions of their employees and properly negotiate with them on their welfare.
The owners give less respect to the guys and think of the money for his family alone, the workers should go and chew gravels with their families.
Most of these great radio presenters that you hear their voice on the radio stations in these regions received less salary at the end of the month, sometimes they hardly get their salaries at the end of the month, sometimes three months or thereabout.
According to the guys I have spoken with they get as low as ghc100 the highest pay is less than ghc1,000 others nothing.
According to my investigation, some of the workers have been on probation for more than three years and over.
These three regions, Bono, Bono East and Ahafo have produced several better presenters in the country when they go to work in another region.
An extensive number of radio presenters known in the industry in the country passed through these regions.
I’m using this platform to confide in them to equally pay their workers well and properly brand the media practitioners in the regions.
