Why is there not 24 hours security AND a police presence at ALL power stations in the Bahamas?

Anyone notice when a private company has majority shares and control ,BTC ,ALIV etc you don,t get all of this union nonsense ..,The union can no longer strong arm the government for raises by promising political support ,,ie buying votes .For the love of all that is good the deal w Shell NA to build own and operate the power plant can,t come soon enough .The separation packages that went on at BTC and at BEC are used to get rid of overstaffing and bad apples .This nonsense now is bc people where being brought in to go over the stores ,supplies etc .The union don,t want thar bc you will see where all the "theefin" lack of proper maintenance etc went on .

We need to return to British rule. Everyone here is a cousin of the next one - and so there are no real rules or enforcement. Everyone pays a higher price for everyone else trying to "save".

There are no real short cuts, as our country is learning now about the high cost of cheap labour.
