Broadcast journalist Berla Mundi has wondered how people placed on meagre salary survive in this country hinged on the perpetual high cost of living.
Her post predictably struck a chord with fans who sprang up in their numbers to pour out their frustrations with the current state of affairs which sees the price of goods and services going up each day.
So people who earn about ghc300-ghc500 a month, how do they survive in this economy?
Here’s what fans are saying;
@ace_rbk – I make GHS650/month as a shop attendant,I stay with my parents & the trick is that I eat my mother’s food in the morning before I go to work, then I use 5cedis for transport, I eat Gob3 or any food under 10 at work, then eat mum’s food in the evening.
I save GHS200 every month.
