A group of Caymanian women gathered in Heroes Square George Town Thursday
afternoon holding signs and asking for available employment.
“I think it is a dark day in our country especially just before Christmas
when the ladies of this country don’t have work, can’t pay mortgages and feed
their children,” said former George Town MLA Lucille Seymour. “Even standing
here and looking out I see drivers, gardeners and others on work permit.”
The protest, which involved several women, was held just a few weeks after
Karissa Cameron picketed outside the Legislative Assembly after she was let go
from her job in September.
In another, unrelated incident, several tour boat operators were meeting with
Port Authority Board Chairman Stefan Baraud over claims of impropriety with bookers for the tours.
The Caymanian Compass covered both events and will have much more on both
stories in later editions of the newspaper…
