Private bus operator face new challenges

I asked a private bus operator if the drop in petrol price helped his business. He said that he saves $1,000 in fuel cost each month. But he has problem in getting workers.

He is a sub-contractor and relies on the main contractor to pass the transport jobs to him. The main contractor is squeezing him by reducing the share of the income that is passed to him.

He said that many of the people like him went bankrupt. They could not make ends meet. He is also thinking of calling it a day.

This is another example of the bad economic policies that is pursued by this government.
