    • Economics does not care about your feelings sir. Currently, St. Lucia receives over US$20 million from Lucians living overseas who send money to their relatives here. This is keeping many families down here from falling into poverty.

      Now if you think about our unemployment problem, Our small economy cannot accommodate our relatively large workforce, would it be better to have our unemployed doing nothing or send them to work overseas and have them send the money back home. It would reduce unemployment and crime while increasing GDP and foreign currency inflows.

      International worker remittances is a viable economic strategy which has had success in many countries.

      It is always a good idea to put your subjective biases aside and observe the situation based on the facts.
