Almost 70,000 foreign workers in Malta

Feb 24 2021 Share

Finance Minister Clyde Caruana has revealed that JobsPlus saw the registration of 69,919 foreign workers as of September 2020.

From these figures, 38,406 were from third countries whereas citizens of the European Union amounted to 31,513. This brings up the total of foreign workers towards 25% of the over 500,000 Maltese population.

Caruana stated that spot checks occur in order to make sure no abuses are occurring as the number of workers from third world countries substantially increased, with stays often averaging around three and a half years.

When employees are discovered without a JobsPlus permit, the employer could be directly given a crime sentence.

Marsa Junction going green with 18,000 trees

Feb 24 2021 Share
As part of the project to enrich the Marsa Junction’s appearance, 18,000 trees will be introduced to the scenery.
Infrastructure Malta will be taking up this feat as one of its many plans, with Infrastructure Minister Ian Borg explaining that the environmental aspect of the junction is an utmost priority.
Hoping that the project will reduce traffic congestion, Parliament Secretary Stefan Zrinzo Azzopardi stated how it required up to 52 Million Euros from European funds. Thus, residents of southern areas need not worry about travel, as the ‘game-changer’ project will alter alternative and mass transport use as well.

With their newest album Terra Firma just released to the world, Australian Maltese artist Tash Sultana has just been made the face of a Times Square Display.

Terra Firma’s hit ‘Pretty Lady’ is boasting over 22 million Spotify listens, with Sultana expressing their disbelief at the feature and the immense praise for the new album.

But the praise did not just stop there as the entire record has garnered an NME award of four stars. Sultana will be celebrating the success in a number of intimate showcases in their studio in Melbourne as COVID restrictions still permit.
