PM emphasises the importance of productivity on Labour Day

Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller says this year’s Labour Day must be used to emphasise the importance of productivity in reducing the nation’s economic vulnerability.

She says if Jamaicans do not become more productive then they would be condemning future generations to economic failure.

Noting this year’s Labour Day theme ‘Lend a hand … build our Land’, Simpson Miller says successfully tackling the country’s debt burden is critical to protecting the vulnerable.

She has saluted public sector workers in particular who have foregone wage increases in the national interest.
