Once upon a time, I employed Guyanese. Dem duz look for a job wth no intentions of wuking.
The Minister is right. If things are tough then a person will work for something. However, Guyanese doan care to work, period, when dey getting free money from overseas relatives.
This attitude was developed during the PNC days of 1964 - 1992 when people did not get work based on their education or skills but rather based on them being associated with the PNC and YSM. People became discouraged, disillusioned and ultimately lazy. The other massive industry developed during those days was bribery. Everything that one needs could only be attained through paying some form of bribery. That bribery industry got Guyanese accustomed to easy and free money and still continue today where people still sit and wait for overseas relatives to send them money and other stuff. These are all proud legacies of the PNC.
