This letter is to highlight an issue that is occurring on the small island of Barbuda, and no one seems to care.
I am a born Antiguan living in Barbuda for almost a year and a supporter of a government that is wrapped tightly around PLH fingers.
I was employed by a local Antiguan contractor who was contracted by an overseas company based at PHL in Barbuda.
Approximately three months ago, the local company was let go, which caused me and several other locals to be out of a job, and unable to support our families while the same US company is importing Mexican and Belizean workers who are working without work permits and not paying the necessary tax deductions.
Just a few days ago, I heard the Hon. Gaston Browne give an eloquent speech on the national TV station, boasting about PHL providing employment for locals.
Prime Minister, what you need to look into is all the incompetent Mexicans and Belizeans PHL bringing into the country to replace your local people who are way better, all because of cheap labor.
The impression PHL and the government giving the people of Antigua and Barbuda is that PHL is so for the locals, but little by little, the locals are getting pushed out.
