Is The Barbados Light & Power Being Transparent About The Spate Of Recent Blackouts?
Submitted by Kill A Watt
Where to begin, oh yeah the latest blackout or was it the one before that. I’ve lost count, what is clear is the usual tired excuse from the Barbados Light and Power “Our protection system did not work and we will endeavour that it will not happen again” until later this year. What the company will not tell the PEOPLE of Barbados is the number of engineers working at the company at an average salary of $8,000.00 monthly for the new ones, I will save the salaries of the senior blood suckers for another submission, let’s see, the above salary by 10 is $80,000.00 monthly by say 12 months works to $960,000.00. Now tell me why the hell am I paying one million annually for a sorry lie.
I am no engineer and I can tell you the lie for free. The problem is simple, the generation aspect has developed and left the distribution side lacking, there were some upgrades but the engineers on both generation and distribution spend their days starting companies and employing contractors to bid over inflated amounts for contracts that don’t go to tender. Hence why they will attempt to fleece you through the people defender the FTC what a joke!!!!!
Imagine an engineer being paid a salary and then profiting via a company contracting services to the BL&P. Conflict of interest depends on who is spinning it. The company fired two employees with on average 50 years between them for theft of used wire. The usual story of a stinking big guts field slave that would carry way GOD if given a chance get promote, there isn’t nobody like them now. See something and went like a bitch to the masa. You draw your conclusions but examine this, an entire crew sent home for an action that is done by all and sundry and I mean all….the distribution system not the best i.e. blackouts hmmm where do I pick up the slack I know the same contractors employed by me the engineer with nothing to do but draw free money.
One less crew = more free money for me. Stay tuned for more in the series
