Nairobi - According to reports by the Daily Nation, in a bid to check inflation and boost growth, the Kenya Private Sector Alliance(KEPSA) wants employers and the government to freeze salaries for two years to check inflation and boost growth.
Patrick Obath, chairman of KEPSA said that there is a need to generate more income for the country for inflation to come down and the shilling to drop to between Sh80 and Sh85 to the dollar for the economy to start to grow.
The call comes as more unions threaten to call strikes to push for better pay. The wave of strikes started in September with teachers, followed by air traffic controllers, university lecturers and now doctors.
