My story here will be brief and to the point.
I started working for Robinson Liquors (Also referred to as Ultra Liquors) last year at the beginning of February. The organisation was very generous to sponsor my training during my learnership period. Three months after my learnership ended and I was employed full time, came the first lockdown period and the ban of alcohol sale..
After the ban was lifted, this has impacted not just my salary and livelihood, but also my chances at further training. The second and current lockdown period with the ban of alcohol I fear has now begun to affect not just my salary and livelihood, but the risk of retrenchment is a serious possibility if the ban is not lifted and we have the time to recover lost sales.
