PM Briceno on Christmas Bonus for Public Officers

Every working person is hoping that their employer gives them a sizable Christmas bonus this year. When it was suggested that the bonus for the public service was a hundred dollars each, many people sounded the alarm on social media. When asked about the figure today, Prime Minister John Briceno was cagey about the amount, but explained that Government is doing what it can to help its thousands of workers, who took a pay cut earlier in the year.

Hon. John Briceno, Prime Minister of Belize: “Yeah we’re working on that and we wish we can do more so we’re doing the best that we can.”

Reporter: But a hundred dollars, that’s the amount ?

Hon. John Briceno, Prime Minister of Belize: “I don’t know how much it works out to but we are trying to do our best to be able to assist them with something to help at least to go and buy their Christmas ham or do something. It’s not enough, nowhere close to enough but we’re doing as best as we can.”
