A release issued by Firestone Liberia notes that employees also receive variety of benefits for themselves and their families, including free housing, free medical care, free education for their children, subsidized rice, paid vacation and pension upon retirement that are ranked highest in the Country. More than 3,500 homes have been built or renovated and additional ones are under construction. In addition, Firestone Liberia's lowest paid employees are among the highest paid agricultural workers in the country.
Concluding, this allegation is a misconception that is engulfed with an unfair characterization and also a clever attempt to smear the good image of this corporate body. Firestone Liberia will continue to adhere to the rule of law and the labor laws of the Republic of Liberia.
