Leading talent acquisition service commends PM Harris for encouraging employers to pay workers more

By: Caribbean Employment Services Inc., Press Release

    BASSETERRE, 26 May, 2022 — As St. Kitts & Nevis becomes one of several Caribbean nations to offer civil servants a salary increase over the last year, Caribbean Employment Services Inc., the region’s leading online talent acquisition service and job board, noted the prime minister’s encouragement for private sector employers to follow suit.


    Just this past week, scores of public workers in St. Kitts & Nevis received back pay following a 10 percent wage increase implemented by the government. Alongside this development, nations like Trinidad & Tobago, Guyana and Saba likewise made moves to hike wages in the public service.


    As an organization that works closely with the best employers and seeks to connect them with the best possible jobseekers in their respective fields, Caribbean Employment Services Inc., based in Barbados, has been closely monitoring these developments.


    At the same time, we also note the seemingly contagious minimum wage talks spreading from island to island in our region amid rising inflation compounded by supply chain issues, which have made importation fees skyrocket on most Caribbean islands. We commend the prime minister’s advice for employers to be mindful of employees’ work conditions at this time.


    The prime minister, this past week, noted, “With respect to the increase for federal employees, we the government acted as an employer and provided its employees with a generous, historic, large 10 percent increase to satisfy a number of initiatives or to satisfy a number of needs: “One, help families cope with the high cost of living; two, stimulate the economy; and thirdly, create an
    environment for ongoing growth and development.”


    The prime minister noted that he cannot force any jobs across St. Kitts & Nevis to follow the government’s lead and pay their workers more. However, he said he “would encourage every private sector employer who can do likewise to basically be generous in their determination of the conditions of work for their employees”.


    “I believe that everyone really could do well with an increase at this particular moment in time,” said Harris, “but I do not have the authority to impose it upon private sector entities… “They will have to make that assessment, and I hope, very shortly, that they will do so.”
