This Letter is addressed to The Government of Antigua & Barbuda, Immigration, and All Citizens!
As an Antiguan Citizen, born and bred, I am very distraught at the state of affairs in my very own Paradise- or at least, what was once called Paradise.
As an Antiguan Citizen, it feels almost impossible for me to get a job, even though I am highly qualified and skilled.
If I were to state the amount of Resume’s/ CV’s that I have distributed to countless Establishments, the figure would be somewhere over fifty.
It’s not like I am old or incapable; I am a healthy male in my thirties, with a wife and two young children- so explain to me what the problem is.
In particular, I sent my CV to one of the prominent Hotels in the Island, Royalton, as I knew someone who worked there, and to my uttermost disappointment, I was told that I was over qualified and that there isn’t any work available.
However, my inside sources at Royalton have been telling me that every week, there are new workers being employed, all of whom are foreigners; primarily Jamaicans, St.Lucians and Hispanics.
Why are they coming and taking all of our jobs, and please don’t get me wrong, I am a fair and welcoming person, but if the scenario was reversed, no way would we be able to go to their country and hold such positions or jobs.
Matter of fact, I was told that there are no Antiguan Managers at Royalton for that matter. All foreigners! Immigration needs to have a look at what’s going on.
The Government of Antigua and Barbuda need to re-evaluate its labour policies. Something just isn’t right!
we are foreigners in our own country!
