Govt can’t guarantee jobs anymore, warns Husbands

A senior education official today warned a group of students that the days of leaving school and getting a job in the Civil Service were over.

Addressing the closing ceremony for a media training workshop, Senator Harry Husbands, parliamentary secretary in the Ministry of Education, further cautioned participants that they may be forced to change careers several times, since “life going forward for you is not going to be as easy as it was for persons of my generation.

“This is just the beginning,” he told the 13 participants in the workshop organized by the Media Resource Department.

The Senator also highlighted the role of parents in their children’s career development.

Recalling the influence that his parents, in particular his father, had on his life, he told members of the audience, “you have to play that very important role in the development of these young people, anything that the Government does, anything that is done at Church . . . is only extra . . . [but] don’t sit around waiting for this politician to do that, or the reverend to do the third, the responsibility is yours”.

    I agree with the senator. With government having to cut jobs even further, what the senator is saying is correct. I also believe poor service from the civil service should be a thing of the past and those not qualified should not be there. There are some hope though. Lately I had to do some businees with the Royal Barbados Police Force and officers I interacted with were very professional and pleasant (Oistins Station and accounts department in Bridgetown). I can also say the same for the Ministry of Housings. Keep up the good work you make Barbados proud.
