Sinckler: Layoffs on track

Chris Sinckler

Between 2,500 and 2,800 public servants have been retrenched so far.

That’s according to Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs, Chris Sinckler, who says the number of laid off workers at the National Conservation Commission is still uncertain.

He said Government’s fiscal consolidation programme is on track, but must be closely monitored.

“There are some other departments that have taken the opportunity to do restructuring that may not have been captured in the original number . . . but don’t hold me to any specific figures, but in that range,” the minister told reporters this afternoon, as he treated close to 400 of his constituent to the annual scenic ride and luncheon which culminated at the King George V Memorial Park in St. Philip.

Back in December last year, in his Ministerial Statement, the finance minister announced that 3,000 public servants would be retrenched.

    Some of my friends just got jobs and still wukking. Some was working for years and gone just like that. I glad for the one that get jobs, but its not fair to the others. The truth is the truth ! When the Most High ready to pour out his wrath. He will strike with cancer, diabetes and everything possible. He says in his word don’t oppress the poor. He says vengeance is mine, saith the Most High, I will repay thee. Deut 32:35

    I thought,the minister would have said that the economy is on track instead of the discharging of workers on track, that means more of you are going, going gone.

    there’s not much to be said about him and his cohorts, only that hopefully they are doing what they have done best while in office so far which is lying

    I would suggest that the way this was handled would be the end of the DLP in Barbados. Of course if so many can be let go then too many were hired in the first place.
