Somerset CC hosts final living-wage meeting
The final town hall meeting to discuss a living wage will take place at the Somerset Cricket Club tomorrow.
The Ministry of Labour, Community Affairs and Sport wants the views of the public on the creation of a Wage Commission and a living or minimum wage.
Meetings have already been held in St George’s and Hamilton.
Panellists for the third and final meeting, which starts at 6.30pm, include committee chairman Rolfe Commissiong, a Progressive Labour Party backbencher, Island Restaurant Group director Philip Barnett, statistician Cordell Riley, lawyer Philip Perinchief and Bermuda Industrial Union president Chris Furbert.
A ministry spokeswoman said: “The ministry takes this opportunity to not only thank the panellists for providing their time and expertise on the matter, but also to thank all those who have attended the meetings thus far.
“Those who are able are encouraged to attend the final meeting and be a part of the conversation.”
Anyone who wants to make their views known can visit The Citizens Forum at forum.gov.bm.
