  1. Yes a commendable gesture. However can you please look at the wages you're paying staff! Pay them a half decent wage and they may not need the hand outs (bursaries)

    And refocus our overseas investments and employment strategies from Tourism back to Agriculture.

    In the banana days most farmers were able to send all they kids to school and higher education (Uni and colleges).

    Some may say the "green gold days" of bananas are over, they maybe so with bananas but the new "green gold" is Cannabis which has quickly turned into a MULTI BILLION dollar industry.

    Wake Up Lucians!
