Power companies pull workers from Puerto Rico

New York Times reported that power companies contracted by the U.S. government to restore power in Puerto Rico are pulling workers from the island, even thought hundreds of thousands of citizens remain in the dark five months after a devastating hurricane. Fluor Corporation and PowerSecure, who had won contracts with the United States Army Corps of Engineers to restore power to the island, were decreasing the number of workers stationed there.

If Puerto Rico cannot be built with the backing of the US, then there is no hope for the island. All of these contractors came on the island, assaulted the island and capitalized off this disaster.

So US government ave Fluor $750 million up front to restore power. The company took the money and now its workers are going home because Fluor has already billed the maximum amount under its contracts, and 300,000 people of Puerto Rico still don't have electricity

Simple. Logistics. PR is an island and other two are attached to the rest of the country.
