NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 15 – According to job market data by Data Fintech, job creation and job growth in the retail sector was suppressed in May 2017.

The median salary of employees in the retail sector dropped by 57.14 percent to Sh22,500 while job creation simultaneously decreased by 66.67 percent between April and May 2017.
