Senate seeks to prohibit casual jobs because of Banks that turn female marketers into casual slaves

The senate on Thursday, considered a bill seeking to stop employers in the private and public sectors from engaging employable Nigerian graduates as casual workers.

Senator Ayo Akinyelure (PDP - Ondo central) who sponsored the prohibition of casualization bill 2020, observed that casualization of graduates in the Nigerian labour market has become a subject of concern to everyone.

Akinyelure, while citing the banking industry, said banks turn female marketers into harlots and sexual slaves in a desperate attempt to make them meet huge targets.

Akinyelure said more workers continue to groan under the strategy of cutting costs by employers thus rendering them inferior to their counterparts in other countries.

"Young graduates are employed as marketers and given unrealistic targets. The females desperate in keeping their jobs turned to harlotry and sex slavery, moving from one office to the other looking for invisible customers. It is high time this evil act is stopped," he said.

Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, after the bill had scaled the second reading, charged the committee on Employment, Labour and Productivity to strike a balance to ensure that casual workers are not made victims of layoffs.

A report is expected within four weeks.
