Workers better off under ruling party, says Byer Suckoo


The Democratic Labour Party has been delivering for workers, says Minister of Labour Dr Esther Byer Suckoo.

In reviewing the last ten years of the ruling party’s record, she said that it had delivered on raising the minimum wage and changing the laws to protect the workers from unfair bosses.

Barbadians, she said, seem to have forgotten that there was a time when too many workers went to collect National Insurance benefits only to realise none had been paid in.

That had been changed under the DLP, Byer-Suckoo said.  She said without the financial resources, the party was able to achieve through sheer political will, delivering against the odds.

Byer Suckoo was speaking on Wednesday night at Bay Street, St Michael as the Democratic Labour Party introduced its candidates.  (AC)
