Inniss: I feel your strain
CABINET?MINISTER Donville Inniss says he empathises with the dozens of temporary public workers who complain they have been operating in a climate of uncertainty over the past few weeks.
Last night during a St Joseph branch meeting of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) at the Grantley Adams Memorial School, Inniss, the Minister of Industry, International Business and Commerce, said the ruling administration was people-based and not an inhumane Government.
“There may have been misinterpretations of Government’s policy and that has led to a level of uncertainty among public workers, particularly the temporary ones,” he told the gathering.
“I certainly wish to empathise with them because it can’t be good to know that you get up on mornings to go to work with a fear that you may be send home or don’t know when your next day will be. That is not the intention of this Government.”
Before an audience that included DLP?candidate for St Joseph Dennis Holder and new chairman of the National Sports Council (NSC)?Michael Power, Inniss said Government had a duty to contain public sector expenditure.
