  1. Question says:

    So fewer Bermudians are employed under the PLP than were employed under the OBA.

    What with that and the cruel tax increases they’re really sticking it to us aren’t they.

    But some get to fly First Class everywhere. And the media consultants get their $2.5m.

  2. Double S says:

    What Mr. Furbert failed to note is that the number of Bermudians employed dropped by 92 jobs in 2018 while ‘non-Bermudians’ went up 223 positions.

    So based on their rhetoric whilst in Opposition, is the PLP now anti-Bermudian and pro-foreigner like the big bad OBA?

  3. Trump supporter says:

    Minister for the cabinet????!!!!! F and F

  4. Ringmaster says:

    These numbers are clearly not good for Bermudians or the Minister would have held a press conference to announce them. The fact they are released on Friday afternoon with just a few comments is further confirmation. Are the Government hiring numbers being suppressed? Are most of the increases in jobs for non Bermudians, showing the PLP are not pro Bermudian but in fact pro foreigner? Something is not right.
