India vs. Barbados: Workers pay the price for cheap labour

YES WE CAN! be competitive with India: but do we want to be?

To West Side Davie and everyone at Barbados Free Press,

After reading West Side Davie’s letter about manufacturing in India and why Barbados cannot be competitive, I wanted West Side Davie and BFP’s readers to consider why we don’t want to compete with India.

The video of the Royal Enfield motorcycle factory and the skill of the gas tank painter were impressive, but if I may I would like to introduce you to the Royal Enfield painter’s dentist.

YES WE CAN be competitive with India, but in order match their labour prices we might have to make some concessions.

Ladies and Gentlemen of Barbados, if you please, meet the official dentist of Royal Enfield’s labour force…

  1. How many infected mouths from those “anaesthetic” flies? Pyorrhoea? Sepsis? Cheap is one thing, sanitary is another… At least in this case?

    The street dentist atleast has scruples and won’t take people’s money if they are not happy.

    Maybe it is the same for a street lawyer there too.

    Maybe we should send some of ours over to India get a course in basic ethics.
