It is very difficult to find a regular job nowadays. Almost all workers are contractuals. This is justified by the so called "open contract" practice which simply means one is a contractual worker for the rest of his working life. This is the permanent contractual worker, which for us, in the trade union movement is a circumvention of the worker's security of tenure.
We can readily see that a contractual worker had been hired and again and again rehired and again and again fired. Labor perceive these successive hirings and firings as a ploy to avoid the obligations imposed by law on employers for the protection and benefit of probationary employees who, more often than not, are kept in the bondage, so to speak, of unending probationary employment without any complaint due to the serious unemployment besetting our country today. No member of the labor force must be allowed to be taken advantage of by and any employer.
