The Nation’s Online Editor Carol Martindale looks at What’s Trending today in Barbados.

Prime Minister Freundel Stuart wants to see more people doing an honest day’s work for a honest day’s pay.

Our readers are commenting on this story.

Abraham Millington: “In such a small country which heavily depends on organic cohesion and is not foreign to the formal and informal expectations of workers’ rights and can preach what is expected, by the same loud speaker is seldom seen bellowing any accountability or stewardship acclaim.”

Titus Thomas: “I so agree with you Mr. PM. Let it start with you and your ministers. Some people wait until the boss is around to look busy. Some people sleep on the job, then over stay the contracted period trying to look busy.”

Margaret Ross: “When it comes to work and earning it honestly, I'm all for that. Now some, would rather not; those are the ones who don't have good intentions.”

One more time: Pride, and industry. Pride is both father of Industry, and also the son. Must never be regarded as a mere cliche, but understood clearly; venerated; made a part of our daily lives; and passed to the next generation. Self-Respect lives near-by, and Personal Dignity's paling is just there, also, up the gap. Our future depends on it.
