SLP disappointed over NICE statement

Press Release:-The Saint Lucia Labour Party is disappointed but not surprised by the support given by Prime Minister Allen Chastanet to his Minister of Equity Lenard Montoute’s assertion that 90% of NICE workers were supporters of the SLP and that there would be no “political fallout” as a result of them losing their jobs.

For a Prime Minister to openly support victimization of hard working Saint Lucians is despicable and unwarranted.  

Is the Prime Minister agreeing that supporters of the Saint Lucia Labour Party should not be allowed to earn a living in Saint Lucia? Is he saying that the colour of an individual’s garments should dictate his employment?

The Prime Minister must answer what will happen to the elderly who will be abandoned and the families of the NICE workers who will be unemployed as a result of the government’s policy of victimization.

    Politics is amazing, but i believe we allow ourselves to be fooled when we don’t inform ourselves but listen to politicians. When this story came out i listened to the news and our forner prime minister said that nice was temporary and the budgeted expenditure for it was almost done by election time. That means it would have been terminated anyway, but everyone is looking for political mileage here and hoping the uninformed will piggy back. Dont trust politicians, get your info yourself

    With so many embassies on the island (the Taiwanese govt. supported the program) why can’t the govt. get subsidies for these hard workers.Some were involved in the latest catastrophic blast.I am in favour of keeping the NICE workers at VH in their jobs
