Fresh row over tea plucking machines as job losses mount

...sacking of thousands over the Covid-19 pandemic that was followed by their replacement with plucking machines. That's logical. With low tea prices, lots of competition and demands for higher wages mechanization is the way to go.

tea combine harvesters managed by four workers displace 45 workers.

“Plucking machines have been introduced in most tea producing countries and Kenya is not an exception especially in this era of mechanised agriculture,” said a senior manager

“The machines consume less fuel and are managed by one person who can do work for more than 20 tea pickers, cutting down on the cost of production by a greater margin,” argued a director at one of the tea companies.

It's not proper to fight evolving technology.
For shareholders,this is great because operational expenses of tea companies will come down.
WTK will create more surplus funds and their generosity will put money on shareholders pockets.
