Laid off workers of now defunct UT and Capital Banks say they are in dire need of their exit pay to set up businesses in order to cater for their families
The former workers are angry that several months after about 1,200 of them excluding contract staff were laid off, they have yet to receive their exit pay which they explain on Accra based UTV and monitored by BestNewsGH.com will cushion them to ameliorate the hardship they have been exposed to, emanating from their current unemployed status
News of some of the former workers now selling pork and coconut among others to make ends meet went viral on social media recently, highlighting the predicament and plight of the former bankers
But speaking on UTV this morning, the former Bankers say even though they have been job hunting since their exit from the two banks, they are compelled to venture into small businesses to keep them afloat while they pray for a quick resolution of issues affecting the release of their exit pay
The ex-workers also complain of the stigma that has been put on them by virtue of the collapse of the two banks, noting that it has become difficult for them to access employment as a result.
They are banking their hopes on president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo to help speedily resolve matter in order to bring them some respite
