NICH lays off staff

Twelve men and women were sent home from the National Institute of Culture and History (NICH) after the organization could no longer meet their salaries.  It is another fallout due to Covid-19 and according to a source the move has come as a last resort. 

Twelve men and women were sent home from the National Institute of Culture and History (NICH) after the organization could no longer meet their salaries.  It is another fallout due to Covid-19 and according to a source the move has come as a last resort.  Love News understands that several austerity measures were taken to reduce expenditure since March 2020.  However, with a cut in their subvention from the Government and with a drastic decrease in other revenues, NICH has had to resort to cutting its staff by six percent.  The organization is dependent primarily from the archaeological sites around the country coupled with some assistance from the Government.  We understand that NICH will be issuing a release on this move shortly.  We will keep you updated.
