1. Working days without anything to work!
They did not have time to lose working for Ministry because their priority was election campaign! During May, not only MMSR but the whole government has returned eyes, ears and their work toward electorate attraction, progress of the campaign and winning the elections at any cost for local government elections in Tirana and other important municipalities in Albania. Socialist party, headed by Prime Minister are lobbying for their candidates leaving aside all the other problems that population is facing, they continue with their parades in all the cities and with their preferred “refrains” of promises they never are full-filled. On the other side MYSW, while judging and monitoring facts in media, in official Web page of the Ministry and Face book it can be concluded that Ministry was active during past 18 months, with different activities but not during May. Media did not have any news for them, Parliament did not discuss any of its programs and official web page of the Ministry was never more passive than this month! We are wondering if also employees of the Ministry had their wages shortened, as the majority of time during this month they worked “voluntarily” for election campaign of the “Right Direction”…. ?
Also during the whole May MYSW was without Minister, on 21.05.2015 the duty was given to Blendi Klosi. MYSW except of being very controversial it also has many problems and planes that were not fulfilled during past 18 months that were under the management of Ms.Veliaj, who took the opportunity in that day to congratulate his successor Ms. Klosi, that even after one week of being in this duty is not having the attention of his employees, as they are “too busy” with organization of elections with Ex Minister, wherein are of course helping “voluntarily”.
During May in media was published an email, notified by Ms. Gjergj Bojaxhi, sent by official email of Ms. Dritan Dango, who is advisor for Relations with Parliament in MYSW, in that email he was inviting neighborhood residents of Don Bosko to take place in electorate meeting with Erion Veliaj. I wonder does Mr. Dango know that he is paid with the money that Albanians share from their modest salaries in order to pay taxes? Does Ms. Dango know that he is part of an institution that represents all the population of this country, no matter if they have right of left political ideologies? Above all, I believe that Ms. Dango is aware that on 26.05.2015 when the email was sent, Ms. Klosi was “the boss” and not Ms. Veliaj, who apparently was still loyal to him helping in elections process.
2. Again the last in the list…
Now we have also the lowest cost per working hour in the region and in EU! INSTAT in the beginning of May published Report of Employment Costs which brought out “painful results” ranking Albania the last, with the lowest cost for working hour in the region comparing with BE states. 314 ALL is average cost for one working hour for full time workers. The highest wages are paid by finance institutions and insurance institutions 545 ALL for working hour.
These results released the truth that Albanian workers are paid with modest wages and do not have the possibility to have welfare, this does not correspond with the facts served by MYSW during these months!
As all this poverty and continual migration was not enough, lastly government approved shortening of economic assistance with 2.66 mld less than the previous year. Ex Minister Veliaj declared previously that will change the lists of people benefiting from the aids, but in fact scissors put on this fund have deepened the poverty of population. Ms. Ben Blushi replicated this decision in the meeting of Parliament, judging that government is damaging the poor and middle classes favoring the rich.
Ms. Nishani President of Republic of Albania stressed out as the main reasons of massive migration of Albanians, economic motives. He expressed his concern for this issue and put a name to it as “national concern” which will damage the integrity of the country.
