Conditions in the streets of Lima, Peru are worsening as workers take to the streets demanding to be paid

New York Times Report

Peruvian Llama

LIMA, Peru — Hundreds of state workers have marched through the streets of Lima, the capital of Peru, because they have not been paid. Fishermen have protested being told they could not fish, complaining that they have no other means to feed their families. And residents living near Machu Picchu shut down trains to the famous Inca ruins, saying that the company operating the railway is unresponsive to commuters relying on it to get to work.

JG: Again, politicians appear to be unresponsive to the needs of the people. SHAME ON THEM!
