St Vincent Gov't may soon be unable to pay salaries, pensions, NIS —PM

St Vincent (CMC) — If the prevailing economic situation continues, Government may be unable to pay salaries and benefits, Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves said on Wednesday.

“I say this with all honesty, the way things are going… in one or two months…the government may not have the $30 million every month to pay civil servants and to pay the NIS contributions to civil servants, those who are pensionable to pay the NIS contributions for current, and to pay salaries and wages,” Gonsalves said on NBC Radio.
