Keep it simple

It seems to me that instead of trying to figure out whether the term ‘exempted’ applies to individuals or categories and then dealing with such applications, it would be a lot simpler to say that every work permit holder who has held a work permit for seven years and wants to remain in the Islands must apply for permanent residence. In addition to eliminating the ‘exempted’ issue, this would also give every work permit holder who qualifies a chance at permanent residence.
