A lot of leaders try to play the blame game when they are not doing their job.
As you know Puerto Rico got hit pretty bad by a natural disaster that left hundreds of people dead and even more people homeless.
Their leader the mayor of San Juan decided to bash President Trump, but that was not a wise move.
The mayor harshly criticized Trump for not providing enough help to the people of Puerto Rico. But it seems his accusations are not true at all. Apparently, Trump’s government sent the much-needed supplies in a warehouse, but the leaders in Puerto Rico are so clumsy they can’t even get people to pick up the supplies. But the workers are doing what they are told to, and it seems managers are not doing their job responsibly.
Leaders should take the charge and do what’s necessary to transport the supplies to their people.
Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz cried for help on Friday and in the same time, she publicly bashed Trump’s response to the natural disaster saying “you are killing us with the inefficiency” referring to the distribution process.
But it seems the real problems lie on a local level and drivers from the Teamsters Union refuse to show up to work because they are in the middle of a union strike. Only one-fifth of drivers are doing what they are supposed to and over 9,500 containers filled with aid are untouched and remain to be transported somewhere else. One social media user knows what’s up and what is the real problem in Puerto Rico.
Colonel Michael A. Valle, the leader of the Hurricane Maria relief efforts, identified the real problem and knows the local leaders are the ones to blame. Valle stated: “It’s a lack of drivers for the transport trucks, the 18 wheelers. Supplies we have.
Trucks we have.
There are ships full of supplies, backed up in the ports, waiting to have a vehicle to unload into.” He finished his statement by saying: “However, only 20% of the truck drivers show up to work. These are private citizens in Puerto Rico, paid by companies that are contracted by the government.”
But to top it all off a diesel crisis is troubling the island as well. And transporting fuel all across Puerto Rico is FEMA’s main priority on the long list of problems.
