The Nation’s Online Editor Carol Martindale looks at What’s Trending today in Barbados. The lay offs at LIME, Barbados’ main telecommunication service provider has readers talking this morning. Managing Director Alex McDonald yesterday announ ced that the company had to cut 97 workers as a result of poor customer service and losses. These layoffs at the start of the year makes it especially hard says some readers. Kim Lyn: “Families, children and Christmas debt must suffer now, at the start of a New Year. Sigh.” Aicart Tracia: “I am at a total loss for words.” Keisha Weekes: “LIME does only think about themselves....as the year start this isn't fair to the workers.” Al Tered: “Sorry to the job losses, but customer service across Barbados is the pits. Sometimes people need to stop blaming the company and examine themselves and the way they treat customers. Why should I keep accepting the poor standards of service? Barbadians have got a long way to go in this area.” Lynn Lucas: “LIME announced last year that the stores would be outsourced. Employees were given the option to be a part of that process. Customer service is poor throughout the island not only at LIME.”
