I asked one of my friends in the media to set up a survey:
What do you think about the measures the public sector is giving itself? Good. Bad. So-so.
What do you think about how the public sector is reacting to these? Good. Bad. So-so
Do you think we should cut worktime by 40%, ATV, for those who can and for non-critical public staffers, including parliament?? Good. Bad. So-so
I have no clue how to construct a survey, but those who know should ask the public sector if ATV is the way to go, less work, less pay, instead of medidanan.
I find it difficult to catch up these days, I am still stuck two days ago, when the Minister of Health did not tell us what’s happening, but allowed a press release to do the job. ZERO political courage there.
We need leadership, caring, determined and enthusiastic, to tell us about imposed sanctions and sacrifices, and infuse hope, in times of crisis. He did neither.
My mind lingers on the Minister of Infrastructure’s press conference regarding Serlimar, from Monday.
She is turning on the light, and shining it into dark corners.
They are in deep in #2
They cost us Awg 132M in the past 5 years. Subsidy and loss combined.
To break even they should bill us Awg 88.3 florin per month, per household, to pick up our trash, WHICH INCLUDES THE TIPPING FEE.
This is almost THREE times what EcoTech charges.
And, Serlimar has a smaller, tasteless toter – azure blue and canary yellow. Really??
Then they still have a debt of Awg 41M
So financing and paying back the principal will run much higher than Awg 88.30 florin per month, per household.
The MinInfra asked everyone to pay their bill, otherwise, disaster strikes.
But I have no idea if I paid it or not.
THEY ARE NOT TRACKING ANYTHING.
All that, to prevent EcoTech from taking the market over.
They wasted 132M of our hard-earned tax money, to bamboozle EcoTech, which turns a profit, invests in processing capacity and delivers top notch service, with LESS than a tenth number of clients.
SO IN FACT many are PAYING ECOTECH FOR THEIR TRASH REMOVAL AND THEN THROUGH THEIR TAX MONEY PAY SERLIMAR at least Awg 88, without receiving the service.
The new broom at the head of Serlimar makes a good impression; he had an Aruban slip of the tongue, he said he might not look like a local, judging by his color, but he is.
I thought Aruba was color blind.
But anyway, we have a qualified Aruban at the helm of this failed organization, he promised to do his best, we have a stoked minister, she is fired up, just what we need, she is shining the light, some people don’t like what she finds, but I like it.
