National Transport employees officially out of a job

Tonight the unemployment line is getting longer. Employees of National Transport are officially out of jobs.  The announcement came today through the Labour Commissioner, Ivan Williams, who said that the Receiver of National Transports and Bel Bus, Kevin Castillo, informed that he would not resume the bus operations.  The employees, some of whom had previously received two weeks pay during the Christmas season, had reportedly been told that business would resume on December twenty-eighth.  Today’s decision now places them in a precarious position because while the majority still has not received any kind of benefit payments, they are now not employed.  Another problem, according to Williams, is that the Department cannot ascertain the number of employees; the Novelo brothers claim there are two hundred and seventy-five but the Labor Department can only account for eighty-three.

    This is not the 1st time that # has been thrown out, but for Labour Dept to only receive taxes for 83 is a joke. No wonder they don’t have money spending money like it is going out of style and claiming wages that are not there. All their assets need to be taken away, even if it is in other peoples name and imprison they for a minimum of 20 yrs.
