In the wake of addressing diverse economic, social and other health related challenges facing the Government and its people, a local Business woman Grace Tate Kaltwasser is calling on all government officials to reduce by fifty percent their current salaries for the common good of the nation and its people.
Mrs. Kaltwasser said it is unfortunate for the people to be living in abject poverty while government officials make fabulous salaries at the detriment of the masses.
She made specific reference to the members of their national legislature who she added are directly representing the people but they she claimed are not helping their own people.
“I am not speaking politics here but to be frank, we are all Liberians and should have a piece of the nation’s cake”,
the Blue CEO, noted.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with our reporter madam Kaltwasser wonders why will majority of the common people who elected national leaders go to bed without food while the very few enjoy, noting that it time for national leaders to seek the direct interest of their people.
On the business scene, she said that doing business in Liberia is not an easy task but with passion and commitment you can achieve.
Speaking further, she recommended a more practical and investigative approach and strategies to help address the inflation rate on the local market.
According to her the exchange rate on the local market is greatly affecting them.
“We are dying slowly and is just selling for the importers as such it is necessary for national government through the relevant government line ministries and agencies to see the need to address the issue of price control as well as the fluctuation of the exchange rate on the local market”.
She told our reporter that not everyone will work in the government as such it is imperative for the national government should create the necessary and equal space for the private sector to grow because they too are helping immensely to provide job opportunities for other Liberians.
Price Control and the exchange rate, huge hardship and many others are now critical economic challenges facing the Country as the ordinary people are feeling the pinched but the Liberian entrepreneur is certain once government put in place all the necessary measures and strategies to address the critical issue and with collectivity, Liberia can get better.
Madam Kaltwasser owner of the Blue Eye Entertainment Center and CEO of Gralan 24/7 security service located on Camp Johnson Road encouraged her kinsman not to relay on government along but to engage into self-help or business related initiatives for the betterment of society.
