Xibka ta’ abbuż - lukanda “timporta” ħaddiema Bulgari minn barra


Persuni li tkellmu mal-ILLUM b’mod esklussiv taħt kundizzjoni ta’ anonimità spjegaw kif lukanda partikolari fil-pajjiż stabbilixxiet kuntatti ma’ aġenziji tax-xogħol fil-Bulgarija, li min-naħa tagħhom ifornuhom b’ħaddiema li jagħmlu xogħolijiet varji fosthom ta’ waiters, chambermaids jew impjiegi relatati ma’ maintenance. Dawn il-ħaddiema jitħallsu €3.80 kull siegħa u minn dawn, l-istess Bulgari, jridu jerġgħu jħallsu madwar 10ċ jew xi drabi anke 20ċ lill-aġenzija li tkun ġabithom pajjiżna. Dan ifisser li f’idejhom dawn il-ħaddiema jkunu qed jaqilgħu madwar €3.60 jew €3.70 fis-siegħa. Meta wieħed jaħdem dan l-ammont kontra l-paga minima jsib li dawn il-ħaddiema, wara l-ħlas obligatorju lill-aġenzija, jkunu qed jaqilgħu minn 46ċ sa 56ċ inqas mill-paga minima kull siegħa, jew sa madwar €90 inqas mill-paga minima fix-xahar.*
