  1. And let’s hope for a $10+ minimum wage..
    St Lucian are taken too much advantage of by being paid with slave wages.

  2. In my opinion that union only represent the interest of the oppressors and the businesses that exploit the workforce with wages as low as 3 to 5 EC dollars an hour. How can you have people working for wages that can’t even pay your bills where is the minimum or livable wage that the government promise ….

  3. May the cries of the employees reach the ear of the Almighty for ⚖️ justice of a deserved ten dollars an hour and not three cents ❗

  4. I personally think everyone apart from the rich and government ministers plus their high officials needs a pays raise right now because the rest buying power is shrinking plus it will eventually trikles right back into the rich mans pocket but at least it will bring in some relief to the rest of us somehow
