PM says thousands of workers to be compensated for injustices they suffered in the past

Prime Minister and Labour Leader Joseph Muscat said that the scheme to compensate thousands of workers which has been approved by Cabinet is being implemented to ensure justice is served with more workers who used to work in  various sectors including the Labour Corps, the Port, the Pioneer Corps and Dirgħajn il-Maltin.

Speaking at an activity in Zejtun, PM Muscat explained how although there is no legal basis for their claim, the Government still felt that it has a moral obligation towards these workers, and that justice needs to be carried out with them as well.

The PM said that while the Government may have a thousand flaws, it has the best possible virtue – that it will continue to be a Government close to the people which listens to families so that it can make decisions in their best interest.

He said that it was for this reason that over the last few weeks he spoke about the most important priority – the quality of life and the time one spends with one’s family.

He pointed out that the European Commission had issued statistics which showed that the Maltese are paying the least utility rates in all of Europe and if it were up to others, Malta would still have the highest bills, which would have tripled every year, because the PN was operating a failed system of Heavy Fuel Oil which pollutes.

He said that the reduction in the utility bills was a great challenge and the Nationalist Party had tried to put a lot of obstacles in place so that families would continue to pay for bills which were sky-high.
