A good lawyer will have these case throw out of court the sad part of the RSLPF is that they law charges base on their instinct and not for a definite position. This is why we have some many criminal back into society and to conduct their routine trade. The charges are just jokes with you come to think about it. Sometimes the lawyer use the charge to rip you off and then make it look as if he knows it all, yes he does but he won’t save your penny at the end of the day. So just don’t look at the civil side report the police too.
Why the system is not enacting a minimum wage so that the so called criminals will go and do the odd jobs like security guards and hotel work . There is a security company that is oppressing the workers a man told me that he is working 16 hours for 48 dollars could you imagine that to earn 48 EC dollars you have to work 16 hours in inhumane conditions and put your life at risk
We all know them charges are lame and the punishment will be mild. Nonetheless I like that rslpf is publicizing its successes….they need to show that enforcement is working….
It good let him work that shift cause when you try to tell people like that about unionizing so that the more of them there are someone can fight for them to get better conditions they always have a soucer amongst them so let them take what they get
