Guyana: Guyanese must not have to settle for oil crumbs

General Secretary of the Guyana Trades Union Congress, Lincoln Lewis has called for measures to be put in place to ensure that citizens are not forced to work for crumbs in the oil and gas sector while foreigners benefit and suggested several amendments to the rules surrounding the functioning of the National Assembly.

“Already it has been brought to Labour’s attention that there exists disparity in remuneration for locals doing the same job as foreign labourers,” he stressed at yesterday’s May Day rally, adding that the exploitation of oil and gas, attracts external investment and attention just as bauxite, gold, diamonds and forestry and there must be a new approach to ensure Guyanese benefit tremendously from these resources.
