One million dollars approved to pay solid waste workers

1

Cabinet yesterday approved one million dollars to pay workers of the National Solid Waste Management Authority and the Central Board of Health.

In some cases, the workers are being owned for up to three months.

“The Cabinet determined that it is quite unfair to keep lowly-paid workers waiting for their wages and overtime payment for too long,” notes from the Cabinet said. Recognizing the tasks ahead which these workers will face in the weeks ahead, and the obligations as parents that many will have to meet, the Cabinet has moved to make significant payments to the two bodies.

It added, “Recognizing the tasks ahead which these workers will face in the weeks ahead, and the obligations as parents that many will have to meet, the Cabinet has moved to make significant payments to the two bodies.”

The workers staged a short-lived protest outside solid waste this week to demand their overdue pay.

Earlier this week, the body’s chairman called for the funds to be made available to pay workers before carnival.

  1. How do they find money to pay the high paid salary ones but not the low paid ones???? The low paid workers are the ones doing the heavy part of the work.
