DAGGERS have been drawn between government and the country’s hard-pressed workers, who have threatened a national stayaway today in protest against the sharp rise in the cost of living, coupled with the recent fuel price hikes which have seen transport fares increasing by up to $5 per single trip, mostly in Harare and Bulawayo.
