Today, Wednesday, January 20, 2016 and PFS is discovering that a lot is happening on our island everyday.
Here are a few things happening that we thought to keep you in the loop about for today:
- Minimum wage has increased for the various sectors. Yay!!! Or Nay?. This one is split, as some people are still saying that the government can do better and that this increase is but marginal; especially considering the weakness of the local currency. PFS believes increase is increase and we encourage all affected to remain positive and plan. Learn to live with what you have that way when more becomes available, you are merrier.
- Police High Command has increased the reward that will be given to anyone with information that warrants the arrest and charge of a ‘most wanted’ criminal. PFS however, encourages whether or not the information warrants the ideal (arrest and charge), please consider it your civic duty (service to your country) to volunteer this information. Let us be forthcoming without expecting incentives. You don’t have to join the Constabulary/Defence Force to serve your country. Any matter that relates to national security, growth, development etc, you are encouraged to get involved and make your contribution. Enough said, it wouldn’t necessarily be too much to ask that the wanted individuals turn themselves in.
- Jamaicans have been hearing that passing these periodical IMF tests bode well for us. However, the average Jamaican may still be searching to find out how this affects them individually or even their social sector. Do you think these reports can be simplified so that us, average Jamaicans can relate and feel proud, if we should feel proud?
- Ok. So on the trails of an exceptional review from Bloomberg on Jamaica’s Stock Market impressive global performance comes a move that is projected to enhance and grow the financial services sector on our little island. Again, are opinions from the masses welcomed?
We hope that these highlights keep you thinking throughout the week and if there are any burning questions or thoughts you can leave them on our Social Media platforms.
We would love to hear from you. Until next time…..
