NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Some Baha Mar employees yesterday expressed being pushed to the brink as they continued to wait after nearly two months for payments from the government’s extended unemployment program.
Speaking to Eyewitness News on the condition of anonymity, dozens of workers have expressed frustration and anger over the delay, insisting that despite constant requests, there has been no guidance from officials on the issue.
One worker advised that they have not received payments since September, while others indicated the last payment was received in mid-October.
When contacted on the matter, Baha Mar said it has been in “constant contact with the Ministry of Finance in regard to the finalization and eligibility of this phase of the Government’s Assistance Program extension.
“We are working diligently with all parties involved and will update our teams as soon as additional information becomes available.
