Financial Index

Inflation has reached more than 20 million percent. The Central Statistical Office (CSO), which used to calculate inflation on a monthly basis, has stopped the exercise, saying most of the goods and services which they used to measure inflation, were no longer available on the local market.

The Poverty Datum Line has also reached unmeasurable levels due to the scarcity of items which are used to calculate it.

PS: Most sectors are now negotiating salaries in foreign currency although they are paid in local currency.

The ZCTU is advocating for workers to be paid part of their salaries in cash in an effort to beat the current bank queues which have become the order of the day for most workers.

Some employers are depositing salaries of their workers into individual bank accounts where workers find it difficult to withdraw it.
