“LAZY” AND “INEFFICIENT”!
Those two words are the ones that currently describe the Barbadian workforce.
That harsh criticism has come from Ralph Bruggadung Johnson, the chairman of one of this island’s leading manufacturers, who believes the only way to get the best out of Barbadian workers is to pay them based on their productivity in the workplace.
“I’m a proud Barbadian born and bred, and not to bash any government or anyone in particular, but we must all realize that we as a country are facing a torrid time. This is mainly because we as a people have grown lazy and inefficient,” he said.
Johnson, chairman of the board of Harris Paints, believes his criticisms can even be extended to his own company.He said he knew he would get some criticism for his comments, but he was only telling the truth.
