  1. Good people of Antigua and Barbuda take note and pay close attention. These words that you are hearing are coming from the Head of the executive arm of government, the Head of cabinet the policy making branch of government. Some persons might want to separate the individual as a person from the Head of government….I cannot. As for Pointe FM, who is really using who? Is the radio station using the PM or is the PM using the radio station. We all can recalled the infamous statement ” When I speaks I speak as the Head of Government…the Top Dawg”

    First they came for the Communists
    And I did not speak out
    Because I was not a Communist
    Then they came for the Socialists
    And I did not speak out
    Because I was not a Socialist
    Then they came for the trade unionists
    And I did not speak out
    Because I was not a trade unionist
    Then they came for the Jews
    And I did not speak out
    Because I was not a Jew
    Then they came for me
    And there was no one left
    To speak out for me

  2. Oops! I got to do as robin and PLH hotel want, keep wages low, so I shall act as though am increasing wages, but what am doing preventing them opposition union from harm my white buddies pocket by really advancing salaries, because they will not have enough campaign monies for ALP when time com.

  3. Whilst you’re so concerned about hotel workers Gaston Browne, then why don’t you reveal to them how REAL wealth is made.

    You and I know that it is not working for someone else.


    AGAIN, SHHHH … 🤫

    • Brixtonian there’s a serious racial wage gap in these hotels that needs to be looked into.

  4. And whilst you are on that, kindly check the Syrian and Chinese businesses, that change workers frequently, then ask:
    Are benefits paid for them?
    Do they pay in their benefits to social security and medical benefits?
    Are they paid a fair day’s wage?
    I remember one day, seeing this humongous food hamper, being placed in the back seat of this labour personnel, (who has a bump on his forehead) by this Chinese from a Chinese supermarket. Yes he could have shopped, but it had me thinking. Everything don’t seem like it looks . Then look at these stores that don’t have a stool for the cashiers to sit on. Then the entranceways for the workers at those very hotels. Too many things wraaaang yah.

  5. ask the line staff at St. James, Verandah, Pineapple, Jolly Beach, Royalton and many more how they feel about this and the junior managers that they wanna pay the bare minimum for carrying the bulk of the work while the top executives are always on their phones, eating, drinking, getting all the perks and do f*ck all. on another note the wages for the same job role in these hotels between black and white differs.
    slavery in disguise black people must not earn.
