GIVING people decent jobs and not freebies will be one of the many ways the People's Democratic Party will address the unemployment issue in the country, says party leader Felix Anthony.
Speaking to this newspaper, he said while the PDP would look at how to sustainably deliver a program that would help children from the poorest of families access quality education, he questioned the basis of the current administration's free education initiative.
"There's no point in giving kids free education but there's merit in giving people decent jobs which will allow the ordinary worker to educate his children," he said.
"By doing that, I am also giving him dignity as a human being.
"That should be the priority and the goal.
"It's not about freebies, it's about giving the ordinary worker a decent job and a decent wage to allow him to carry out his responsibilities," Mr Anthony said.
Mr Anthony said this would develop a nation of strong men who would be the perfect role models for their children.
