Catholic Social Services workers go unpaid

Posted: Updated:

Apparently, processing delays at the Guam Department of Public Health are the reason why Catholic Social Services employees still haven't received their paychecks.  Deputy Director Leo Casil says checks were supposed to be delivered last Friday.

"We are concerned with our employees because we have over 250 employees who were looking forward to that and not knowing what the status of the typhoon was because they wanted to buy ER supplies and so on and thank god it was not really an emergency because they had no money to buy supplies."

The Department of Administration says $130,000 in checks was processed last week and the department was processing another $100,000 today and cutting a check so employees can be paid.
