    This project is coming together like piece to a puzzle… Well done everyone.

    This is terrible.

    I and several others have been to this site numerous times (over the last 9 months) to enquire about employment and were told – no work here – not yet.

    I think I need to wear “a foreigner outfit” to obtain employment there.

    It is as if – no one is hiring Bermudians in Bermuda – despite what this minister is stating in this story.

      ACBDA is responsible for this project under the AC Act..and they are exempt from work permit policy and the immigration act…

      The Term Bermudian Labour has an entirely different meaning…in the AC Act.

      Did this really happen to you? It sounds far fetched to me….you never went did you, if you did who did you speak to? Take it to immigration not here.

    There are plenty of Bermudian’s working there. Maybe the opportunity was not made available to you, but that is the way buisness goes. A job cannot be found or made for everyone. Good for you for being proactive though.

    May I take the opportunity to mention some points that make an employer want to hire : 1) make time, 7am is 7am 2) show up when expected (and not just on pay day) 3) work OT when needed to get the job done 4) don’t “lose” tools or disappear for extended periods of time during the work day 5) stay off your phone…your women will be there when you knock off – the basics go a long way.
