A Delay in Salaries for Public Officers

There is news tonight which public officers will not be happy about and that is because those members expecting salaries today, for the April fifteenth pay period, are not getting their money until April fourteenth.  That is six days late, and after the Easter holidays during which families will be staying at home and will need to stock up on food and other items.  It is also the first salary for the new financial year, 2020-2021. The delay, we are told, is due to the economic downturn and because government’s revenue is low as it battles the novel coronavirus.
