Labour policies

I fully agree with Fiji Labour Party leader Mahendra Chaudhry in his response to Tukai Lagonilakeba of Nadi (FT 7/11) on the above topic that the FLP had been forcefully removed on two different occasions disallowing them to increase the national minimum wages.

For far too long businesses and authorities have blamed the rising costs and price hikes (inflation) and struggle to maintain profit margins, i.e., costs as an explanation of inflation. Yet they (MPs) are prepared to award themselves an increase in allowances.

I believe this is profoundly unfair because it manifests unfair distribution of income as the rich save more a greater proportion as the country recovers from TCW. Most insensitive and ruthless!

On COP23, we marvel at the lack of political will to tell large emitters to curb emissions. Much lip-service as Mahen says!
