Workers fired left right and centre and not a word from Minister of Labour Dion Foulkes

Nassau, Bahamas — Breaking news coming into Bahamas Press confirms more workers at City Markets could be set for the unemployment lines.

Sources in the Eight Mile Rock area of Grand Bahamas tell us, the store is bare as an empty fridge. Patrons confirm they have to travel to Freeport for some basic items and daily it appears more and more the lights are going out. Workers are afraid and patrons are shaken. But that’s not all.

Workers in the food chain tell us letters canceling their insurance coverage have been issued. The move tells us something greater is on the rise.

“We don’t know what is happening here, we are definitely up for a crash. Workers are being sent home, and insurance is being canceled. This is not a good situation,” a frightened workers said.

Since taking over the food chain the new owners of City Markets have closed more than four stores and have terminated scores of workers.

And in the midst of all this where is PAPA? Somewhere with James Edger Curling on the July Rock gone fishing while Rome burns!

  1. And dont’ forget the foreign company of Cable and Wireless who have been here a little over four months and have already cost many their jobs, including phone card vendors. This rape of our country by foreigners must stop!

  2. Dear BP I have been unemployed for almost two years and all I received was 13 weeks from NIB and not my full salary less than half. Unemployment has not gone down we are just tired of this Government lies so we try to survive without them because that is excately what this Government is doing to us leaving us out of everything, we do not exist anymore, we are the foreigner in our own country. It is time for Bahamians to take a stand once again,, speak up for our rights, one or two cannot do this we must be united the way Sir Randolf Fawkes did when he had the Bahamians march on Bay Street. Wake up Bahamas for tomorrow this land will not be ours, wake up.

    • Well May I know someone who has been unemployed since 2008, and they still RED as FIRE! So to each his own.

  3. BP. I think for the record you should remind “wat again” that it was the FNM who used NIB funds to pay private debts in Freeport. At the time Fred Mitchell pointed out to the PM that this was unconstitutional but the FNM did it anyway.

  4. Bahamians, including FNM supporters, are growing more afraid of losing under this FNM government what they have worked so hard for. Bahamians are nervous over what the Bahamas has already become and will become once the Haitians become the power voting “block” they are being encouraged to become by this FNM cabinet.
    What have we become in our own Bahamaland? What will become of Bahamians within twenty years?
    I am sorry but Haitians and Bahamians have nothing in common that would want us to be granting them Bahamian citizenship’s?
    For the sake of Jesus pray tell us Bahamians how we got where we are with the Haitians, when this FNM cabinet never even bothered to ask us Bahamians if this is what we really wanted for our Bahamaland?
