South Africa firm denies toilet break allegations

A South African company has denied it only allows its black workers 60 second toilet breaks after they staged a protest outside one of its plants.

About 100 employees at Agrico in Lichtenburg, west of Johannesburg, took part in a demonstration on Tuesday, according to The Sowetan.

They alleged toilet breaks were restricted to a minute, and that they weren’t allowed tea or cigarette breaks.

Furthermore, they alleged the restrictions did not apply to their white colleagues at the farming equipment manufacturing factory.

Albert Tshabadira told the newspaper: “It is not nice, we are always scared and work under severe pressure.”
