The injustice committed by certain master builders causes a drama in the construction industry, since according to official figures, the country’s unemployment rate is low (4.77%).
According to construction workers, they are charged $ 20 per week to get a job and keep it. They pay a $ 100 bung per month. A bricklayer earns $ 20 or so daily, this varies according to the job he makes.
This is the reason why more construction workers prefer to work where recruitment is direct and not through master builders.
Thus, regarding unemployed workers, they heard that the recruitment process for the construction works of the hospital of the Institute of Social Security (IESS), in northern Guayaquil, is direct and resumes are still required, so they come looking for a job by hundreds.
