Fred you've missed the mark with this one.

If one's moral compass is tied to compensation then the individual is already tainted.

I repeat: if we have to pay an individual for integrity, then integrity is already lost.

Whether or not the pay level is where it should be is another discussion. One that the country is not ready to have right now.

Reasons include: the current financial standing, maturity, the recent dismissals of thousands of Bahamians.

To date, we have paid for failure, corruption, special interest lobbying, and shenanigans.

These newbies do not "deserve" a pay raise until they are proven to "produce" more and better for the electorate than they're predecessors.

Arrest the deficit and stabilize the economy to at least a 1.5% growth rate and I'm all for a pay raise. But don't give us the biggest deficit ever then talk sh8t about a pay increase the next fiscal year. GTFOH with that BS.
