Delaying Salary Increases for Public Workers May Help with Finances for Rebuilding Efforts

Updated: August 5, 2016

Recently, the Government of Belize had committed to salary increases for teachers and public workers.  With all things considered when it comes to public debt coupled with the expenses being incurred following the destruction by Hurricane Earl, the possibility of having the teachers and public workers increases delayed is one that was discussed yesterday via a press conference with the Prime Minister.

Prime Minister says he will be in dialogue with the unions on this issue.
