NATIONAL Employment Centre volunteer workers who were employed on a housing rehabilitation project at Vunidogoloa in Cakaudrove last year have complained about their irregular pay system.

A youth worker who wished to remain anonymous said they were promised a weekly pay of $90.

According to the worker, they were sometimes paid the full amount and at times they received no pay at all.

He said they did not have their FNPF contributions deducted nor were they given tool boxes they were promised at the beginning of the project. Speaking on the concerns of the youths, centre director Viliame Cagilaba said the attachees were recruited as volunteer workers during the housing rehabilitation project.

"I encourage youths who have queries to contact me personally so we can discuss their issues," said Mr Cagilaba.
