The Management of Belize Tourism Board held meetings today with the various departments to announce to its staff a decision to tighten BTB's finances. Plusnews was told that BTB has decided to freeze the annual staff increments effective June 2015 until 2017 when an individual assessment will be conducted for each staff member. That assessment would determine if individuals will qualify for a salary increase. Reports to Plusnews are that some of the staff members are not taking the news well and have opted to seek legal counsel regarding the decision. We tried to get a comment today from the BTB but were told those who would be able to speak on the matter were in meetings.

9% hotel tax has funded elections, Ministers mistresses, vote buying, etc, etc. Try to get a $ allotment from BTB for something pertaining to tourism. BTB has always been a piggy bank for the political pigs

So the beneficiaries of BTB allocated funds have done nothing for tourism? Tourism industry won't miss them anyway except for the 9% reminder.

Hotel tax is a fact of life in every country and as is misappropriation, stealing, etc. Nothing new here and happens here, there and everywhere. I just happen to care about here. You should care about there
