CAPE TOWN – Disgruntled Dis-Chem workers are demonstrating at the company’s Sea Point outlet.
Employees are unhappy with their working conditions and pay. Torn up pamphlets advertising Dis-Chem’s products lay strewn outside the pharmacy at The Point Mall.
Some of the demands of embittered workers are better salaries and working hours.
Outside the shopping center, police and law enforcement officials are keeping a watchful eye on the demonstration.

Watchman Mhlahlo, an employee of Dis-Chem says: “We wake up early in the morning, some of us start reporting to the warehouse at 5:30 am, but [they] start paying us from 8 am. All those hours we work for free.”
