Guys you may not of heard of this at the mo BUT a huge problem is brewing over there! my wife is from Quito and they police have gone on strike completely meaning banks have been raided, shops looted and so on, the army are due in and this is due to the goverment reducing the the wages of the police from $1200 pm too $800 There basicly is NO police! all of them have gone on strike bringing the country to a total standstill..
I don't know how it stands now, but quite a number of police officer's in various South America countries moonlighted due to poor wages.
The armed forces will take of the task of security.
Most commercial properties including banks had their own armed security officer's. Quite a number of people carried firearms for self protection. Or at least that is how it was when I spent quite a bit of time in that part of the world.
sunnystaines Thankyou so much! i'm very Greatfull!
The average wage is $250-$400! so the police was getting paid a far Whack! At $1200-$800 PM but still... Its very hard to understand the income as in the comparison over here in the UK but the Police was on a good crack!
