The Guyana Trades Union Congress (GTUC) says that it continues to see an ad hoc approach by the current government in the hope of achieving structured development.
In a release on Tuesday, the GTUC stated that presenting the nation with a shopping list rather than having policies developed to address strengths and weaknesses of the society will not achieve holistic development and tackle serious areas such as poverty and health. The statement noted that the GTUC was presently studying the Budget and would issue a detailed response in due course, and its response was based only on a cursory examination.
According to the release, the GTUC said that money being allocated for the creation of jobs in the absence of stated unemployment figures deprives society of any means of measuring or determining if the resource allocated is sufficient, and whether it can effectively impact, which in “other words constitutes shooting in the dark.”
