Comments on: The world is talking about migration – so should we! Thinking for ourselves Fri, 29 Apr 2016 00:58:16 -0700 hourly 1 By: David Strauss Sat, 02 Apr 2016 09:58:16 +0000 One of the biggest problems with the RMI government is the poor performance of the Public Service Commission over the years. They have always bowed to pressure from elected officials to hire their family members and friends, the vast majority of whom are not even close to being qualified for the particular job. This results in many Marshallese who do not have certain last names or are not related to the high mukety-muks moving to the U.S. and many in the U.S. not returning home. There is no hope for them to be hired. Also, when government employees do not show up on time, miss days of work, and do not perform, no disciplinary action is taken. When one is hired as an employee by the RMI government, with a very few exceptions, one is hired for life. No need to perform.
