CAIRO, June 19 (MENA) – The cabinet’s media center denied reports on spinning and textile company workers being forced into an early retirement as part of an EGP 21 billion plan to develop the textile sector.
In a statement released Wednesday, the cabinet said it has contacted the Ministry of Public Business Sector, which has categorically dismissed these reports, stressing that early retirement is an option.
The ministry added that it is totally keen on the rights of workers, asserting that all reports about early retirement are rumors that aim to provoke the anger of spinning and weaving workers.
The ministry also urged all media outlets and social media users to verify the authenticity of any reports to avoid stirring up the public opinion.
