Slaves no more!
Franklyn: Don’t let foreign firms exploit workers
OUTSPOKEN OPPOSITION SENATOR Caswell Franklyn has accused the former Democratic Labour Party (DLP) Government of inviting businesses into this country to exploit Barbadians.
According to him, this had resulted in some workers today being treated like slaves since the invitees believed because they might have been friends with a politician, they could treat workers as they liked.
In a verbal onslaught, which was interspersed by suppressed laughter from fellow senators yesterday, Franklyn cautioned those in the new Government not to follow the alleged bad examples of the Dems because “bad examples can lead you to an ankle bracelet”.
Speaking during Senate debate on the Fiscal Incentives (Repeal) Bill, 2018, the trade union leader declared he would not tiptoe around the issues, as he charged that under the previous administration, taxes were waived and concessions given by the load unnecessarily, on account of underhand deals.
