De Peiza: Protect frontline workers
The Mia Mottley administration has been warned to better protect Barbadians working at the country’s ports of entry, and not to put economics ahead of the welfare of the people, as it strives to keep Barbados open for business while battling the coronavirus pandemic.
The warning yesterday came from the president of the Democratic Labour Party (DLP), Verla De Peiza.
Just last Tuesday during a national consultation at the Hilton Barbados Resort, De Peiza stood in unison with Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, saying tackling the disease was a non-political challenge, and urged Barbadians to accept the technical advice from Government while donning national colours to help fight the disease.
But De Peiza isn’t happy with everything she’s seeing since that meeting, especially as it relates to workers in certain sectors. (BA)
