  1. GOOD ASSESSMENT.
    I Haven’t even started listening yet… But I appreciate this so much.
    The Government need to consider the working class who gets off work at 5pm and want to buy goods just the same.
    7 pm Kurfew means closing commercial sector at 5pm or 4:30pm so that the workers can get off the street.
    Supermarkets and Wholesalers, haberdasheries etc.
    So by the time you get off work, you can not get to buy goods.
    They closed to facilitate Kurfew.

    THIS IS MY DIRECT EXPERIENCE AS SOMEONE WHO TRAVERSES THE BUSY THOROUGHFARE TO GET TO & FROM MY PLACE OF WORK.

    It means running through rush hour traffick to get to a Supermarket or a Store to buy important items. BY THEN, ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET TO WHERE I INTENDED TO GO SHOPPING FOR ITEMS.

    THAT AIN’T GOOD.
    Via that experience, I don’t see a major difference between shutting dowm at 9pm than 7pm.

    What can 2 hours bring but affect spending ?

    I think the Government of Jamaica should properly weigh the options, because My direct experience and Testimony suggests that a 9pm shut down is more conducive.

    That means all Shopping is expected to end at 6:30pm as they usually would.

    That’s Key here.

    It means I am not affected in my daily life cycle where I get off work at 5pm and could go buy a few items on the road before 6:30pm when everything starts closing down.

    I don’t think a 7pm Kurfew is best for the Country at this time.

    It definitely affects spending and consumption.

    I’d recommend 9pm.. because I suffer directly from the 8pm Kurfew.

    Rush hour Traffick means I can not get to buy things.

    Is that good for the Governments budget?
