“They (directors) proposed an amount of between $200 and $500 for each of us. But I declined because I felt the amount they were paying did not measure up to our status. I felt they were taking us for granted, so I did not accept the amount they proposed,” he said.
“From a reliable source my other colleagues ended up taking a mere $500 and I believe that was disrespectful. Hence, after a period they (directors) called me and handed me an amount of $15,000. And this is how much I believe, we deserved and should have bargained for”, he added.
