      Then after strike is riot. These petty politicians aren’t gonna have to pay the mark they gonna have concessions. We as a Barbadian nation cannot continue to be silent about stuff that affects us. Whether Flo or bop anyone that feel they can do as they like because of status or power should be made an example of

      My question is what would the stores do if the people decided to strike all day instead.
      I was not referring to the population.

      Shop owners will loss money, employees want get paid but the reason for this action is to show the government the people are sick to the back teeth of sitting around a table taking and getting nowhere. If you all have a massive turnout they must take notice and then think of a different strategy to solve the problems the country is facing.

      Cheunisa Scott I don’t want riots but your comment regarding the nation cannot remain silent to what will effect them I totally agree with you. It’s time to make a stand and speak out for what is fair and right for all.

      Yes I know they will lose money anf I know thw purpose of the strike.
      Right now they are ‘facilitating’ workers by opening later. If it went to all day how far will they go to ‘facilitate’ those same workers. The article seems to be saying this is how the stores are helping. How long will the help go?
      I am all for hitting the government where it hurts and hopefully some of the idiots in charge will do something before the strike lasts too long and people are affected. My pray is that idiots don’t turn to rioting as said idiots wait for any opportunity to justify, in their minds, such deplorable and ineffective behaviors.

    Hope to see the out come of all this. The fact businesses can closed for a political motivated march, shows that things are not all that bad in the commercial area. Tell the public the fianancial fall out resulting from this closure. Hope when there is bad whether and the order to stay indoors is given, that order for workers safety would be respected. This closure has set a precedent.

      That is the irony and dilemma. It is supposed to be applied to the cost of the item. It is not a sales tax so it doesn’t necessarily have to be displayed on the receipt.

    I applaud any Barbadian that takes this opportunity to show what they object to with action and not just talk. Each person that marches tomorrow; be they Barbadian or a supporter against the Political injustices being forced on long suffering Bajans, you are making a positive statement that stands for a purpose bigger than yourself.
    Barbadians take allot of negative, it’s a great strength to believe strongly that God will never bring more than you can bear and to verbally express your feelings against those issues, just realise that a large body of Barbadians marching as a form of non-violent protest; shows you also have inner resolve to fight back and not take the Governments mismanagement of your hard worked for monies as just another burden you have NO Choice but to suffer an Bear. U ALL have a CHOICE and a Voice!!!!

    Why could’nt these businesses do the same for the former employees of The Royal Shop and Sandy Lane Hotel during their time of need? This is not about the people but about themselves. This is the same group of business people who are asking the government to send home more public servants. The government need to make public the consultation, and advisory documents obtained by some of these private business persons and organizations. I guess they’re holding these documents for the election campaign.

    Never thought share holders would have to be exposed to such treatment from its own kind. The mistakes of administrative government should have nothing to do with the hindrance of the financial activity in the private sector, this action sends a clear warning to the region that there is a lack of communications between the private sector and government of Barbados. Precious moments are being wasted by such actions and this climate produces more expense upon the general public! Unions should be bound to ethical order just as other organizations are!
