I think that most of us here already know what is happening in the BPO sector since a few weeks. Employees of one of the biggest BPO firms of the island came forward to claim their salaries, unpaid since a few months. With no concrete action taken by the management, a group of employees went into a strike hunger for several days.
J.S, the big boss of the office finally came out of his hole. A lot of false promises, putting blames on others followed his appearance. Coincidentally, they discovered other frauds in the office, stolen equipment. For those who still remember, J.S and his company were in the headlines several times in the near past :
- Millions of rupees were granted as a Stimulus package during the financial crisis.
- The SIC (State Investment Corporation) purchased the Infinity Tower to help the company to get some cash
- On top of that, J.S is the Special Advisor of the Prime Minister and critics around have been linking the privileges due to this relationship between the big boss of the BPO center and the PM.
But the fact is here, weeks after, a large majority of the employees are still unpaid while a few have been partially remunerated. Despite all these, he can peacefully drive his Aston Martin 😉
Anyone wants to add something else?
