In other news, the Briceno Administration is receiving major backlash after a memo from the Cabinet Secretary surfaced telling financial officers that the CEO’s will not receive a ten percent pay cut. This was not received well by the public and especially the Public Service Union (PSU). On Thursday, Cabinet Minister Francis Fonseca reiterated to the media that CEO should not be exempted from the salary cut.
Francis Fonseca, Minister of Education: “I think as the Deputy Prime Minister rightly said we will have a discussion about it at the next Cabinet meeting. We will I’m sure be provided with an explanation as to why there was a change in the position and once we have been provided with that explanation we can have a proper discussion on it and make I think make the right decision.”
