People who call the Spanish line at the Department of Employment, Rehabilitation and Training find themselves being insulted with a message in Russian or another foreign language and when they answer the telephone they encounter nasty, rude, and unprofessional operators who insult them and then hang up the telephone on them after they’ve just spent eight and a half hours listening to bugle music that drives everyone crazy.
One particular operator on the Spanish line name Liliana was heard by someone at the Las Vegas Tribune on speakerphone after having listened to that message in Russian (or some other language that is not Spanish) and heard the operator hang up.
The way they apparently operate is that when anyone calls, the music starts up, forcing these who are calling to listen to that distressful music for more than eight hours before they answer and then they verbally start abusing those who inquire about the money that Governor Sisolak, Elisa Cafferata and others may have stolen from them—money that was to be for those who are financially suffering from losing their jobs due to COVID-19 — money they applied for and which is a financial benefit that is rightfully theirs.
Now it seems to be a plot that includes Congresswoman Dina Titus and others in her office after she was afraid to speak to the governor about the stolen Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) money.
A woman wrote a letter to Congresswoman Titus begging for help in getting her money and it seems that the Congresswoman used her letter as scrap paper because she never responded, never acknowledged it and
seems to be afraid to speak to the governor on behalf of the citizens of Nevada. A copy of the letter is at the Las Vegas Tribune office for safekeeping.
It seems like people are afraid to use their names because “they can come after me and I’ll never get my money” and most people need that money to eat, to pay bills and to catch up with the rent. “I don’t need the money to go shopping; I need the money to pay bills,” one man told the newspaper.
Everything seems to be at the governor’s pleasure and not at the need of the citizens — from the governor’s standpoint it’s: “escalate” the complaint; take months to get an answer; investigate the lost money which’ll take up to six months; call a higher-up which’ll take from five to ten days — but in the meantime the people are evicted, their lights are cut off, the water service is terminated and the car is repossessed.
Someone needs to help those people and the articles written by the Las Vegas Tribune DISAPPEAR from Google and the internet because other publications are trying to delete the only newspaper that speaks on behalf of those who need help.
