Only Whites


Share post:

A HISTORIAN is charging that the work permit system is being manipulated to reserve jobs for white foreigners.
Trevor Marshall said yesterday that “elite whites” were being allowed to come into Barbados to take up top positions under the guise that employers could find no suitable candidates here to fill the positions.
An unapologetic Marshall, who also took issue with whites being allowed to sit in Parliament without facing the electorate, spoke against “job reservation for elite whites” as he delivered the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) lunchtime lecture on the topic 175 Years of Emancipation: How Free Are We?.
“We are going through a recession and there is talk about our laying off people and yet . . . so far for this year I have counted in our newspapers 14 notices headed ‘work permit’,” he said.  (DP)
