Limiting Jamaicans creating Labor shortage

Tuesday, January 31, 2006

Small construction companies in the Cayman Islands are complaining of labor shortages attributed to immigration policies limiting the number of Jamaicans granted work permits. The islands Work Permit Board has long had a balancing policy designed to limit the dominance of 1 nationality. Of the 45,000 total populations, are Jamaicans with work permits, who make up of the expatriate workforce. The Caymans Employment Relations Department ERD - is preparing surveys to advice Government on any needed changes to the law or policies. There is a dynamic shift in the construction industry where employers are not able to fill positions traditionally held by Jamaicans who are viewed as good tradesmen with cultural similarities. Recruiting workers from countries in Latin America, Canada, India and the Philippines, cause Cayman Islands employers extra problems with higher travel costs, and fewer English speakers.

hi there cayman please be realistic here ur fellow country man is not gonna work for ur cheap labour ok, so please give the jamaicans a big break u all are like antiguans. we all r one and it is just rediculous these people always work for lesser wages, just because they have a goal to acomplish. i know how it is being away from home you can't beg this or beg that everything you have to buy. if they hadn't wanted a better life they wouldn't be there working for two ends to meet. then againg i really can't blame you because the bible can't lie it has to fulfill, (ations will be fighting against nation). please just back off.

do better cayman
sine cayman is a part on the Caribean common Market i cannot understand why Jamaican need work permit or why worke permit should be restricted to their fellow island man. its all about bad polotical policy. cayman look out for your neighbour. and stop being so bitter against jamaicans. ther were and have always been there when u need cheap labour. take a leaf from the european they are comming to gether as one so why cant we.
