Have a Raise
Starting this March the workers get a 25% salary increase, of course they are very happy. Cibening Village is not big, but since electricity entered the village, many changes have occurred with the local community. Many people already have television, refrigerators, mobile phones and motorcycles.
The basic needs of food (including water), shelter and clothing now is not enough. People now also need sanitation, education and health care. So when the workers got a raise, it meant a lot for them.
Goldteak workers are lucky compared to the surrounding community who rely on agricultural land for planting cassava and banana. Sometimes they have to work on somebody’s rice field to get some money as farming labors. But not for Goldteak workers who receive monthly salary so they can manage their income wisely.
