Gov’t Salaries To Be Paid From FRIDAY Rather than Monday According To Hurst


The Cabinet notes dated, 11th December indicated,“that salaries and wages will begin to be paid on Monday, 16 December 2019, or at least one week prior to Christmas.”

This notation was an error said Cabinet recording secretary, Lionel Hurst: “The government of Antigua and Barbuda will begin paying salaries and wages as of this coming Friday rather than on Monday as the notes indicate.”

According to  Information Minister Melford Nicolas, this payout on the Friday instead of Monday holds more significance as persons will better be able to take advantage of the upcoming sales tax reduction.

The Prime Minister on his facebook post cautioned government workers to, “exercise prudence with their spending since the next pay day will be January 31, 2020.”



  1. Sounds like good news for the govt workers but what about us, the Social Security pensioners?? We can also make use of the reduce ABST!!!

  2. This Government cannot please the BLUE KOOLAID DRINKERS. No one can derail this Government. I must congratulate the Government for the early payment.

    As I am writing I am also listening Observer AM with.D.Gisel Isaac. I finally came to the conclusion that this Lady should NOT be around POLITICS. The UPP should fire this Lady. She does NOT know how to give compliments. D.Gisel Isaac CANNOT find one good thing done by this Administration. The UPP would not go further with these People at the helm. D.Gisel Isaac and Harold Lovell should leave POLITICS . They are doing Their Party and Antiguans a TOTAL DIS-SERVICE. Long Lived Hon.Gaston Browne and ABLP.
