Barbados Workers Union wants increase in Minimum Wage

General secretary of the onion, Sir Roy Trotman said that Professor Andrew Downes, who was asked to look at the wages now being paid, recommended that the workers should get $7.50 per hour, which would amount to $300 per week.

Sir Roy said that he felt that Professor Downes’ recommendation was a bit too low, but nevertheless his union would go along with it to maintain a good relationship with employers.

He told journalists that he will intensify lobbying for an increase in the New Year.

The last increase was implemented seven years ago and he stressed that it was high time the workers got more for their hard work.
