Cuts in jobs and ministers’ salaries
Some 3,000 public sector workers will be sent home next year.
Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler says 2,000 employees from Central Government and statutory bodies will be retrenched from January, while the remainder will be sent off in March.
Government ministers and parliamentary secretaries will also be taking a 10 per cent pay cut as part of the measures aimed at stemming the country’s widening fiscal deficit.
More details soon.
