  1. Black Bermudians still bottom off de barrel.

    • Brady says:

      A meaningless comment on a meaningless report. What were the job types? That would be useful info.

      • Typical undeserved privileged Right Wing comment.
        We were forced to work free for centuries (dispite failed uprisings), then after Emancipation another 100 years of the Jim Crow era into the Civil Rights Movement and now the Social Conditioned mindset is causing Phsycological Damage.

        • Infidelguy says:

          Typical racist comment!

        • Joe Bloggs says:

          Just how old are you OJ? I am nearly at retirement age and whilst I remember discrimination I have no memory of slavery or anyone, whether black or Portuguese or other, working for free as an indentured servant.

          • sage says:

            Do you realize slavery exists today, in so called ‘first world’ countries as well as ‘developing nations’ because of people who think like you? There are people alive who were enslaved in the US during the so-called John Crow era also, who know all about it, I just watched an old man recount how a ‘sharecropper’ ran away, long after emancipation, and was caught, castrated and burned alive in front of him and the other ‘workers’. Hatians are enslaved in DR right now as we speak in a system supported by preferential prices paid by the US for sugar. Unscrupulous bosses here exploit workers local and foreign, remember the filipina girl found to be working, as a bartender for some well known, well heeled politricksters, 60 hours while getting paid for 20? I do. PS. history is studied so we don’t forget.

        • nerema says:

          For one thing, you never worked for free, and you have never experienced anything you’re whining about.

        • Toodle-oo says:

          An unpopular truth gets hung up . How strange .

    • gustav says:

      black women got an increase
      black men got hit by an decrease
      why are not both black ?

  2. Me says:

    Unemployment slightly more the new government has nothing for Bermudians so far where are the jobs or is it all showboating and spending

  3. conspiracytheory says:

    Might have something to do with Education and Qualifications. Look it up.

    • gustav says:

      cant agree more.
      everybody has to realize that the Job Market is a Battlefield ( except CV )
      either you have the education,qualification and willingness to go the extra mile or you have to suffer .
      race is not important at all .
      nobody will hire you because you have just a specific skin color.

    The census department has done a commendable job and they all should fee very proud of their excelent work.

    Two years is long period of time to wait for a fully detailed report.

    There are some fact check statistics that need to be realeased much sooner in order that we can determine the direction that the country should be taking.

    In particular we need to know where our hard earned dollars will do the most good, or is it all going out the door for service.

    In an aging community, can some one tell me how 60,000 odd people can pay off the countries debt or does it just take one robot ?

  5. PANGAEA says:

    You are what you are going to be !

    A Plumber is a Plumber and a Banker is a Banker.

    A lazy man will sit on the wall and complain .

  6. Me says:

    Never mind all that we all voted for jobs for bermudians the PLP blasted the ObA about the so called 1000 jobs they said they was gonna fix it and balance the budget so we were lied to ? Smh same ole same ole spend and photo ops won’t last long a politician is a politician what ever shape they come in
