  1. If them a get paid 2,500 and with the increase of 293 =2,793 a day and if a 5 to 7 days them work it don’t even add up 20 thousand. Pay them more

  2. Firstly the amount being paid 2500 is wickedness. That’s where the problem lies. Now an 8% increase is a lot. It’s normally an increase of 3% the most for most companies. So you see the problem is not the increase its the flat rate.

  3. 2 gran a day and people need to return back to work 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣

  4. Every two years to get a pay increase,Wow πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

  5. better them go chop some bush fi three gran a day and go rest after looks how much fi a spot eeh jah know star

  6. you lot are crazy look how high the cost of living is those people deserve even $4.000 dollors per day

  7. This is a international disgraced about the burials in Jamaica πŸ‡―πŸ‡², that should have sorted πŸ‘Œ out. A very long time with the management, and it shouldn’t haveto reached to this kind of situation at all. It is really an embarrassing situation with the families of the deceased them, that you turned up to buried. Your loved ones at the cemetery and found the gate locked πŸ”’, and you cannot get in. So you can buried your love ones and, you don’t know what to do at all. Becaused of the carelessness of the management of, from paying their workers them.
    I could not believed that they are paying the workers them, that little amount of money. In times like this in Jamaica πŸ‡―πŸ‡² $2,500 a day to work, what that can really buy and. The lady πŸ‘© was saying that they are getting a nice raise, that lady is really sick into her head.I hope that the funeral owner does not let this kind of things to happen again, when people come to buried their loves ones. They found the gate locked πŸ”’ and, they already got their money πŸ’°. They want to collect but they does not want to pay out at all, they are all for themselves ok πŸ˜‰ πŸ‘Œ
