BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — Naked, this callous disrespect for employees’ lives by greedy business people on the island must stop.
That fast food restaurant must also be named and shamed. They should both be penalized and fined. It is a national shutdown and the business owners value money more than their employees lives.
Bajans, stop letting greedy, nasty business people demean, degrade and disrespect you. They will do the same to your children and grandchildren. Anonymous
THE STORY: Irresponsible! That’s how Attorney General and Minister of Home Affairs Adriel Brathwaite has responded to reports that at least one local supermarket chain has opened for business amid the passage of a tropical storm. Reports are that in addition to Carlton & A1 Supermarkets, several branches a local fast-food chain have opened for business today even though the island is currently under a tropical storm warning. However, during a press briefing the office of Department of Emergency Services a short while ago, Brathwaite called on businesses to consider the safety of their employees, while stressing that once a national shut down was called it was mandatory for companies to comply.
