Maxima employees reveal alarming working conditions

Dec 02, 2013
From wire reports, RIGA

Controlled toilet times and other complaints have been revealed by workers at the Maxima supermarket.

The supermarket employees revealed the shocking facts on LTV's De Facto program this week. They include Christmas presents for employees' children, the value of which is later subtracted from the employees' salaries and long working hours..

A Maxima security guard told the program that the company's employees are still in the same situation, even after the Zolitude tragedy. They have been told to stick to the company's instructions and not to leave their workplaces even in case of alarm going off.

Several Lithuanian workers added that comments made by Maxima management after the tragedy are in line the company's style of management.

Former Maxima Latvija CEO Gintaras Jasinskas came under fire for his insensitive remarks at a press conference on the supermarket tragedy.

"It is those who feel guilty who resign," Jasinskas said, replying to a question whether the company's executives would follow Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis' example and step down.

Jasinskas said he himself felt "responsible, but not guilty," and that at least he "can look people in the eyes. Maxima" shareholders fired Jasinskas the same day as a result of the comments.
