Businesses unable to pay salaries due to lockdown

Given the worsening financial situation owing to the coronavirus-induced lockdown, some retailers and mid-level businessmen have asked their employees to limit personal expenditures as they may not be able to pay new month’s salary if the current situation persists.

In a message to his employees, an owner of an electronic goods store said he would pay March salary but after that he would not be able to do so as he would be out of cash.

“I want to help you all out of sympathy but I do not have any cash left,” the owner said. He suggested to his workers to hold back payment of all utility bills, rent, school fee and any other overheads, and collect ration for two months so they could be able to survive in case the lockdown continued.
