The BWU demands 15 per cent increase

The Barbados Workers’ Union (BWU) is demanding a 15 per cent salary increase for its members in the public sector.
BWU general secretary Toni Moore told reporters a short while ago the across-the-board hike would be for two years, retroactive to April 1, 2016.
Moore was speaking after addressing a near two-hour meeting of shop stewards in the Public Service at the union’s Solidarity House headquarters this evening.
She said the 15 per cent demand was practical, given the present economic conditions, and the proposals would be submitted sometime this week.

    Maybe I can ask a fellow Bajan(Barbadian) this question! Has any one of you milked a goat? Well there comes a time when the udder just runs flat and no more milk is released, the goat gets irritated stamps it’s feet jumps in the air with it’s hind quarters and knocks the bucket over! Animal husbandry may teach a new generation a bit about economics!
