Sporting the brand's logo and colors, workers marched from Goodmans Bay to the mega-resort's parking lot chanting their affection for Izmirlian. Some workers chanted, "We love you, Sarkis," as they walked along West Bay Street. 

The rally follows reports that the government has stepped in to pay salaries for this month, citing concerns that workers were being used as “pawns” in the resort’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy claim.

Attorney General Allyson Maynard Gibson confirmed on Thursday that the government will pay the salaries of more than 2,000 Baha Mar workers this month as negotiations over the fate of the stalled $3.5 billion project continue.
