Reforestation workers have not been paid for the past three fortnights.
And they are concerned about paying their bills and buying supplies for their children to return to school.
The workers are employed by the Ministry of Agriculture’s Reforestation Programme.
They have turned for support from Opposition Member of Parliament Christine Newallo-Hosein, who has asked the authorities to ensure that the workers receive their wages.
“There seems to be no one who can assist them in resolving this matter,” Newallo-Hosein said.
In recent times, there have also been reports of occasional late payment of wages to workers of the Unemployment Relief Programme (URP).
