Retrenchment at hand in Gravel and Concrete

Retrenchment at hand in Gravel and Concrete
In a recent interview on GIS, Minister Steele tried to dance on sand but did not know that he let the cat out of the bag.
The foreign minister found himself on unfamiliar grounds, trying to dabble into the affairs of Gravel and Concrete. The NNP knee jerk reaction to the issue of sand mining by granting “limited “ sand mining rights is another one of their feeble attempts to say that they have “delivered”. NDC reduced the VAT on certain items of Construction materials from 15 % to 7.5%. They recently made a big hurrah when it was reduced to 5%. NNP propagandists want to make Grenadians believe that they reduced the VAT on those items from 15% to 5%.
Sorry Hamlet, many Grenadians do read and will not fall for this cheap trick. So Mr. Steele is trying to give Grenadians the impression the he working and will deliver a stone crushing machine to Gravel Concrete. Big deal!! When questioned about quantities to be removed, he had no answer. He was also…

Celebrating 100 days of broken promises

The Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell had made a fool of the Grenadian people, promising to deliver so much within one hundred days of being elected to office.  The reality is more hardship for people . Hundreds of workers,  mainly  women making less that $1000. a month have been sent home. They have children to feed and  to send  to school. Dr. Mitchell made commitment that no one will he victimized . As we see these was merely words. 

The only thing the NNP were able to deliver were terminated letters and empty promises. Prior to the election, Dr. Keith were on television saying a vote for the NNP is vote for betterment. He was ranting about hundreds for investors  that were line up. Where are the investors?  

The NNP and Keith Mitchell is lieing  to the Grenadian people. The only visible sign of hope is the CCC project and that will only employ 200-300 persons. Not a 1000 as was said by Dr. Keith and the NNP. 

In the midst for all the empty promises people are suffering more that ever…

VICTIMIZATION AT ITS BEST

St. George – According to Labour Representative in the Senate, Ray Roberts, dozens of very ordinary workers cannot celebrate the new Government's one hundred days in office. Addressing a meeting of the Upper House, Senator Roberts read excerpts from dismissal letters signed by Permanent Secretaries and sent to more than 50 workers making less than one thousand dollars per month, informing them that their services have been terminated.

However, Senator Roberts congratulated the Government backbenchers who he said, can all celebrate because they are all receiving Ministers salaries of more than $6,000.00 although they didn't have ministerial responsibility in our crisis economy.
Senator Roberts said that when there is a change of Government, we expect the Chief of Staff and the 'big boys' to exit their jobs - that is accepted.

However, what the Government is now demonstrating, according to the Labour Representative, is the termination of the employment of some of the poores…
