Audley Shaw ... "I was on an interview last night. I said that we can create 250,000 new jobs in Jamaica. Dem a question me, how yuh gwine do it. Which sectors yuh gwine get it out of."

Labourites have been urged by Jamaica Labour Party heavy hitter Audley Shaw to be sceptical of reports in the media.

"Watch weh you read and watch weh yuh hear inna di media. So so ginalship a gwaan inna the news media. Watch it!" Shaw said.

Shaw, addressing a bumper crowd of mainly St Elizabeth and Manchester residents in Junction, South East St Elizabeth Thursday night, said the People's National Party (PNP) has been getting a free pass from the media while proposals of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) are being subjected to rigorous examination.

"I was on an interview last night. I said that we can create 250,000 new jobs in Jamaica. Dem a question me, how yuh gwine do it. Which sectors yuh gwine get it out of," Shaw said.

"When Peter Phillips say him was going to create 100,000 jobs nobody don't ask him nuttin," Shaw said.

 Explaining how the new jobs will be created, Shaw said a JLP government will transform agriculture and create jobs for rural people.

"We are going to transform the same Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) ... PNP say dem can create 30,000 ...  40,000 jobs, Labour Party say we can create 75,000 jobs in Business Process Outsourcing," Shaw said.

He added: "If we can create nearly 100,000 jobs in that, we nuh can create 250,000 in everything else? Manufacturing, agriculture, everything else".
