The Qadisha Electric Company, a privately managed firm subcontracted by Electricite du Liban to serve Tripoli, made an estimated LL175 million ($115,608) last month from fees it charged to job applicants. Qadisha referred The Daily Star to Electricite du Liban, where sources said that Qadisha put out a call for applicants for 74 positions, with an application deadline of June 29 . The sources said that 3,500 to 4,000 applications were accepted and processed.Hasan explained that regardless of the fees, Qadisha would have expected thousands of applicants for both skilled and unskilled positions because of the high unemployment rate in Tripoli and north Lebanon in general.Ali, who runs an employment agency in Tripoli and did not want his last name used, said that Qadisha's charging candidates to apply for jobs is not surprising.The video's comments are full of outraged young Tripolitans who tried to apply for jobs.
