So succulently put, but absolutely true. No tourists.......no jobs, no matter who says what.

Did they follow Shane Gibson's law requiring notice for mass layoffs ?

I think that law was for over 10 people being made redundant. So i guess it depends on the number

No matter what Shane says or said, if there are no tourists making reservations, reservations staff are redundant. No tourists equal no jobs, understood? Shane doesn't, and never will have jobs to give these people.

Have a feasible Bahamian or local rate. Many persons from the Family Islands and even New Providence would like the opportunity to stay at these hotels. Unfortunately the prices are exorbitant. Let us try to attract our own people.
