“From the time the healthcare workers are still disgruntled, it is telling me that what politicians say and what’s actually happening in real life are two different things.”

“So are you confirming that there are in fact outstanding payments for certain healthcare workers?”

 

Darrell Spencer

“I do so confirm that there are still persons being owed overtime and are being channelled through odds and ends as how to collect what is rightfully theirs.”
