Mill workers still not
paid, funds frozen


The Dacongcogon sugar mill in Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental, owes about 190 of its workers P1.5 million in wages, its manager Roberto de la Rosa said yesterday.

Management has not been able to pay their wages because the assets of mill investor, beleaguered Legacy owner Celso delos Angeles, have been frozen, de la Rosa said.

There is currently no work at the mill and its resumption of operations when the milling season starts will depend on whether the mill will have new investors, he added.moremoremore
