"When I started work here 5 years ago I could see very clearly - now I
couldn’t see very well, thanks to WAPCO". These words, made by a WAPCO
worker give a clear indication of condition of work in this
"slave-camp". The working conditions are no better than most other
factories. It follows the all too familiar pattern in Nigeria - more
work, less pay.
In spite of the fact that women constitute a sizeable percent of the
Nigerian workforce, putting in the same time as their male counterpart,
with their labour of no less value, and in the vast majority of the
cases, having the same responsibilities, women are still discriminated
against as "second class" workers.
