The Nassau Guardian reports that he said:
"a “tough sell” for his ministry to approve work permits for bartenders, laborers and maids at the property."
"Mitchell said the private sector must work with the government to train the labor force to take on skilled jobs instead of complaining about a skilled labor shortage."
He went on;
“And if we don’t address this issue of training they will fix their mouths to come to the Department of Immigration talking about work permits for bartenders, housekeepers and laborers in the hotel sector."
“Get the training program going because we’re not going to have these kids sitting on the side of the street watching people working at Baha Mar and talking nuts about they’re going to get work permits for housekeepers and laborers."
Am I missing something? Is Mr. Mitchell suggesting that our school system is turning out people that need special training by the private sector to help us become housekeepers and labourers?
Well blow me down!
All this back and forth just continues to unsettle the job creators.
