United States Employees Striking despite Economic situation


The Central Bank Governor has said that T&T's economy is fragile and a national strike will harm our economy. Trade Unionist have responded to Mr. William's claims asking 'When is the right time to strike'. The local media has flooded us with images and stories of the USA's debt, the crash of their stock market etc. Yet still on Monday 45,000 Verizon workers walked off the job in protests over labour negotiations with the telecommunications giant.

My question is if United States workers could still strike despite the state of their economy, then why can't citizens of Trinidad and Tobago strike for a just wage? Our economy is better than the USA and we have local companies like Republic Bank churning out profits like $806 million and growing their asset base to $46.2 billion dollars, OneMedia Caribbean made $44.5 million and Ansa McAl made $954 million. Make no mistake, economic troubles or not I assure you that the shareholders of the aforementioned companies will receive their millions in dividends, the managers will receive their thousands in bonuses, so why can't workers who are responsible for the profits seek a just wage? It is indeed a travesty and a criminal act to pay out dividends to shareholders and bonuses to management while denying employees a just wage.
