PLP: OBA ‘is not working’

Shadow Finance Minister David Burt

Bermuda’s job crisis is getting worse under the One Bermuda Alliance, according to Shadow Finance Minister David Burt.

The Progressive Labour Party MP said that Bermuda was experiencing record unemployment with 3,486 people out of work, as indicated by the 2014 Labour Force Survey.

“There were 511 less people working in 2014 than in 2013, a figure that pours cold water on the OBA’s continued talk of recovery,” Mr Burt said.

“This report makes it clear that the trickle down policies of the OBA are not working — they have caused further job losses and record unemployment.

“What Bermuda needs is a more diversified economy and a government who is looking to build an economy with ideas for the future, not a government focused on ideas from the past.”
