The declaration of war against the hard-working citizens of this nation further illustrates the Rowley regime’s lack of effective measures in response to Trinidad and Tobago’s economic challenges.

This is according to Opposition Leader Kamla Persad Bissessar.

She says that the announcement of a 0/0/0 wage policy a.k.a. wage freeze in the public sector is another symptom of the Government’s absence of vision and creative solutions and the inequitable distribution of the burden of the adjustment.

She labelled the move a sharp rebuke of the labour sector, with which Dr. Keith Rowley signed a pre-election pact and faithfully promised meaningful consultations.

This policy she opined will also have a knock down effect in private sector employment.

She called on all who are affected by this to send a clear message of disapproval to the Government.


The Opposition Leader called on the Prime Minister to take over leadership of Ministry of Finance in these critically trying times and to lead with compassion and fairness to working class citizens.
