VALLADOLID – After Christmas vacations, the company Ingenieros Civiles y Asociados (ICA), which is building the fourth section of the Mayan Train project, resumed hiring personnel due to the notorious delay in the work, which has even been acknowledged by those in charge of the federal project.
On the eve of the Christmas holidays, most of the project workers went on vacation from December 23 to January 3, but many of them did not return because they felt they were being exploited by being made to work 12 hours every day.
In fact, drug use has increased in this Magical Town because many workers on the Tren Maya use drugs to get through the workday.
However, everything seems to indicate that many of them decided to stay in their place of origin at the end of their vacations.
At the beginning of this year, the Human Resources office of ICA, which is located in the San Juan neighborhood, was notorious for the absence of prospective job seekers, but for the past few days the place has been crowded with people interested in the vacancies, and they are even lining up to be received.
Some of the beneficiaries of the arrival of the unemployed are the nearby businesses where documents are photocopied and there are vendors of snacks since the applicants come early in the morning and spend hours at the place waiting to be given a job.
Two lines form at the site, one to enter the interviews and the other to register and hand in documents; then they leave and one by one they are called back to be told whether or not they have been accepted for the project.
Meanwhile, work is still behind schedule on the toll road, where the work is being carried out, but it is thought that progress will be made after the hiring of personnel.
In some parts there is only embankment; in others, the road is being leveled and flattened, and a section of the toll road has already been repaved.
