St Kitts and Nevis: Prime Minister Dr Terrance Drew pledged to increase the minimum wage of the workers of St Kitts and Nevis during the “Labour Day Parade”. He extended greetings on the occasion and shared glimpses of the parade.

PM Terrance Drew took to Facebook to share snapshots of the parade and committed to continue work for the improvement of the socio-economic conditions of the people of St Kitts and Nevis. Outlining his agenda, PM Drew said that their prime agenda would be to extend efficient support to the workers of the country.

He stated,” Today we were outside again, and it felt great on the occasion of Labour Day in support of our nation’s workers. Your caring government continues to keep at work with the aim of improving the socio-economic conditions of our people.”

PM Terrance Drew while promising said that on topic, increasing the minimum wage is on the agenda as we aim to close the almost decade gap with the last for such happening under the St Kitts-Nevis Labour Party administration in 2014. Recently, in the joint meeting of Constituency 1 and Constituency 8, PM Drew also raised several concerns of the workers and stressed increasing their minimum wages.

Recently, St Kitts and Nevis also hosted “Miss Labour Queen Pagent” in which eight contestants participated. PM Terrance Drew took extended greetings to the winner and wished. He said,” Join me in extending Congratulations to all eight contestants who participated in the MISS LABOUR QUEEN PAGEANT. You all did very well and should be proud.”

He also extended congratulations to The Reigning Miss Labour, Queen Cyanna Johnson of Constituency #8. You did us proud and brought the crown home.  PM Drew also wishes to congratulate the First Runner Up, Ashley Wilson of C5, Second Runner Up, Zarina Roberts of ‘C1, and Third Runner Up, Junecia Williams of C3.

Deputy Prime Minister Geoffrey Hanley also extended wishes on Labour Day and stated that these are some of the epic moments captured on camera today, including snippets of the unveiling of the project design for the Sir Robert L. Bradshaw Museum. The pictures tell the story best, but they don’t tell how proud I am to represent the people of my Constituency and my country.

“It’s another Labour Day, when our entire nation remember the many stalwarts whose lives and dedicated labour allows us to enjoy the many freedoms we enjoy today! May we never forget their commitment to nation building. We are because of them. Go out today and celebrate this beautiful Labour Day with your friends and family and remember to stay hydrated. HAPPY LABOUR DAY, ”said the deputy prime minister.
