Thinking of these words to Dolly Parton’s popular song, I wonder how much relevance they presently have to the working day in Cayman.
Every morning – from 6:30 a.m. in the outer districts – diligent, enthusiastic employees can be observed racing into town like maniacs so they can get to work early?
One must admire the apparent zeal of such workers.
In the evenings, the roads are blocked with employees leaving work from around 4:30 p.m. most days and 4 p.m. on Fridays!
Does anybody work till 5 p.m. anymore?
My suggestion is that employers install time clocks with punch cards, from which hours worked and applicable salaries are determined.
Just imagine how many hundreds of additional man hours will instantly be provided!
