 Labour and Social Security Minister, Shahine Robinson is warning that the government will be taking stronger action against employment agencies scamming Jamaican job seekers.

About 30 private employment agencies currently operate in Jamaica. 

Robinson says while many of them provide viable employment opportunities for thousands of Jamaicans, unscrupulous ones are defrauding job seekers.
