The Pakistan Steel Mills (PSM) laid off 4,544 employees by terminating their employment contracts. According to sources, this happened all in a day.
The list of employees included teachers, drivers, firemen, operators, health and security staffers, SEDGMs, managers, and others.
The workers’ group ‘Stakeholders Group’ rejected this decision and said that it seems that the state has become irrelevant in the PSM matter.
