-workers protest wages, Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale, late paymentsAmid reports of a $210 M fraud at the Ministry of Agriculture’s National Drainage andSome of the protesting D&I workersIrrigation Department, workers yesterday staged a protest over delayed payments and low wages.According to reports the misappropriation of the funds was discovered at a time when the Ministry is conducting an audit. There are also reports that a Project Manager and an Accountant have been sent on leave to facilitate investigations.But Minister of Agriculture Dr. Leslie Ramsammy has denied knowledge of the fraud. The Minister however noted that the Ministry has undertaken to revamp the Department which is not sitting well with some employees.“Some persons in that Department are resistant to the changes that we are making including our Project Manager, Mr. Visham Boodhoo, who has since been sent on Administrative leave and is threatening to go to the media, ” the Minister said. Ramsammy further stated that if there is any such misappropriation of funds it will be uncovered as the auditing continues.Meanwhile Drainage and Irrigation (D&I) workers staged a protest yesterday over continuous late payments and poor salaries.The workers gathered in the compound of the Ministry of Agriculture where they voiced their disappointment about their circumstances.Some of the employees told Kaieteur News that for several years they have endured low wages combined with late payments.“Imagine in December we get pay Christmas Eve day, and they are suppose to pay we every 16-days…when you carry in time sheet sometimes you have to wait until the 15th or 16th of the other month before we can get pay, ” said one woman who has been working at D&I for the past seven years.Workers noted that they work 16 days a month and that when the cheques are paid, they in turn have to spend money to visit a bank to receive their already minimal salary. “Is only $23, 600 and they are punishing us by waiting so long for us to get paid. We have a life to live; how can we survive if they continue to behave as if they don’t care?”Noting that most of the workers are single parents, the D&I employees said it is unfair for the Ministry to treat persons who are so dependent in such a haphazard manner.“Georgetown more stink than the East Coast, and East Coast workers getting paid over $44, 000; and we in town getting $23, 600, and when you talk for your right they telling you that they will knock you off, ” one male worker said.

Britain (express.co.uk) – From forest fires in Australia to logging in the Amazon, the area lost is always described as the size of Wales.But a team of campaigners backed by royal greenie Prince Charles has turned this on its head. On St David’s Day, the Size of Wales charity was expected to announce that the principality has become the first country to protect an area of tropical forest equivalent to its own size.That’s five million acres of trees in 20 projects from Kenya to Guyana in a £2million project.Prince Charles says Size of Wales is “impressive hands-on action” to protect the world’s forests and climate.He adds: “Helping to sustain an area of tropical forest equivalent in size to two million rugby pitches shows great leadership to other nations…”Denmark is now considering doing the same, which would save 10 million acres, and Ireland has launched a more modest Size of Phoenix Park campaign.Safeguarding forests helps the locals and us. Tropical rainforests absorb one-third of man’s carbon emissions, a benefit cancelled out by emissions from clearing forests.Research shows that preventing deforestation is 875 times cheaper than cutting emissions through the EU’s labyrinthine Emission Trading Scheme.Saving forests can also change lives. Roger Wasibi, China Jerseys Free Shipping, of Uganda’s One Million Trees Project, said: “Uganda has suffered from devastating landslides as a result of deforestation and this tree planting project is helping to stabilise the soil to prevent further disasters and provide shade for better crops.”The need for action is urgent. About 30 million acres of rainforest are cut down every year from Brazil to Indonesia. Maybe it’s time for England to follow Wales’ lead.

Even as the Guyana Power and Light, Inc. (GPL) signals great confidence in supplying consumers with an adequate supply of electricity for the Christmas season, the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) is calling for an investigation to be carried out into the operation of the company.PNCR Executive Member, Keith ScottAt the party’s press conference on Thursday last, Executive Member Keith Scott pointed out that both the GPL and Government owe the people “a proper and credible explanation for the erratic and unreliable supply of electricity in Guyana”.According to Scott, no official statement offered so far has logically explained the daily unscheduled blackouts occurring countrywide.However, GPL, through its Chairman Winston Brassington, has expressed optimism that the power company will be able to avert a ‘dark Christmas’.Scott, however, pointed out that in December of last year, GPL had predicted that Guyanese would have a black Christmas which led “President Bharrat Jagdeo, in his usual bravado-style, to make some grandiose announcements and promises.”In this regard, he recounted that Guyanese were told that new generators were ordered and that they would have arrived by special shipment to ensure a bright Christmas.The nation was also informed, Scott related, that GPL was being reorganized; staff would be reduced; greater efficiency would be achieved and that a new special maintenance schedule would be observed.And according to Scott, it was expected that with increased generators, as announced by President Jagdeo, there should have been a greater opportunity to accelerate the maintenance programme.“Less than a year later, this company is holding Guyanese to ransom again; businesses are seriously affected and productive activities are being stymied. Last week our health facilities were adversely affected. The Fort Wellington Hospital was in total blackout for the entire evening on Sunday October 19, 2008 and without a functioning generator. On the same day, the entire Corentyne Coast from No 51 Village to New Amsterdam, the entire West Coast Berbice and East Coast Demerara from Rosignol to Plaisance were without electricity.”As such Scott noted that the PNCR has no choice but to question what logical explanation there is to rationalize the current state of affairs.“Is it that so much unbudgeted money was spent on Carifesta X that none was available to purchase fuel? Is it that the promised maintenance never took place or that there was no money to purchase the spares? Is it that the GPL policy of indiscriminate dismissals of experienced employees has resulted in a shortage of relevant skills that are essential to the effective maintenance of the system? What are the real reasons for the non-completion of the new generator at Kingston as was finally admitted by GPL?” questioned Scott.He disclosed that it was just a few months ago that the PNCR raised the issue of GPL in Parliament and had advocated that in the public interest there should be an investigation.“Similar to their behaviour with respect to the torture motion, Cheap NFL Jerseys China, the PPP rejected the suggestion and commended GPL for the wonderful work that they were doing.”As a result, the PNCR Executive noted that Guyanese are today reaping the results of that folly, adding that GPL and the government must therefore come clean and let the people of Guyana know the truth.
