Respect guards, respect life

2018-04-05 06:02

Security guards are human too, and people must stop taking advantage of them.

The exploitation of guards by private security companies is getting out of hand and must come to an end.

Guards work hard to protect companies and people’s houses but they are being exploited almost every day.

People who run security companies are only interested in making huge profits while neglecting their workers.

I used to think that the guards were treated fairly because they are always smiling, but I have come to realise this was a wrong perception.

Working as a guard is not supposed to be some kind of punishment because a person doesn’t have qualifications.

It’s supposed to be a decent job because guards are there to ensure people’s safety.

It’s unfair that most guards are treated badly by their bosses.

The government should make sure that the industry is properly regulated for the benefit of the workers.

Security guards often risk their lives but their working conditions are bad.

The government should have resolved this matter long ago, but they won’t because some of the officials own security companies.

The government should make sure that the security guards are treated fairly.

They state should regulate all the industries where workers are being exploited by their employers.
