    Yes, that's been cleared up. As far as I know of, they haven't gotten paid yet, but will soon.

    Still not "cleared up" and some not paid.  Our neighbor works at a school.  Goes to work everyday.  The card she uses to withdraw her pay has been blocked.  And, no can explain why or when it might be "cleared up."

    PROCEDURES BEGIN TO ELIMINATE BOTELLAS

    The Ministry of Education of the Dominican Republic (Minerd) began administrative procedures to cancel during this month the 3,929 teachers who despite being on the payroll, supposedly do not perform teaching duties.

    This was stated today by a source at El Nacional, who pointed out that as soon as the audit carried out by the Minerd concluded that 3,929 teachers were "bottle", work began on the separation of the payroll from these.

    Last Tuesday, when giving details of the audit, Education Minister Andrés Navarro said that the cancellation of these teachers would represent a saving for the State of about RD $ 117 million a year.

    ADP would receive list
    Also, the Minerd will deliver today's noon to the Dominican Association of Teachers (ADP) listing with the names of the 3,929 teachers that were detected do not work in public schools.

    The information was offered by Eduardo Hidalgo, president of the guild that groups the teachers, who said that when they receive the document they would make a cross with the payroll that the ADP has to determine if they certainly do not perform educational tasks.

    "We have to validate that information, the ADP agrees with the audit in a general sense, even to previous ministers we requested audits to the payroll of the Ministry of Education, now, we believe that errors have been made in the audit that was done to the Teachers, "he said.

    Hidalgo also stated that the 4,169 who were unlocked from the Minerd payroll began charging this Friday.

    My wife said this has been going on for decades and her exact words were, "It's about time". She also said that there are other government agencies where botellas are a problem.

    From Dominicans I've spoken to, this is far from limited to teachers. I'm told there are many people on government payrolls receiving a salary for jobs that they never work one day in their life - not just show up and don't work, the job basically only exists on paper.

    One "official" in Jamoa supposedly has five different titles and collects five paychecks from the government. It's all government payoffs for votes and how many potential votes a person can bring in.

    That's fine.  But, as is typical sometimes, they have f*9cked up the lives of responsible people.

    Responsibility is not a Dominican "strong suit".

    Of course.  But, in this case, I have known this woman for years.  She works.  She takes care of her kids.  She pays her bills - early.  And, still sh*t happens.  The electric company also shows up to cut off her luz.  She has to go out with the factura and show them she paid.  Incompetence.  In a word.  And, so now again similar sh(t.  She does what's right and still things go wrong.  Too common.
