Regarding different comments I have read about government not compelling Windward Roads or Saba Roads to pay taxes. well I have no comments regarding that because I have no idea how the set up or deal or agreement is. However I will voice my concerns regarding the fact that the employees of Windward Roads are not registered on the island( at the census office) they never had to write out of St. Maarten.
What I think is unfair, is that these men who are “exempted” from writing out of St. Maarten to register on Saba, are taking away jobs from our own local people.
What do I mean with that, simple, after they have completed their daily work for Saba Roads they are seen working all around the island for Tom, Dick and Harry.
Now tell me people of Saba is that FAIR and JUST???. Come on how can this be allowed first of all they not registered and already working for a company here that has taken away jobs from own local contractor and to top it off the unregistered workers are probably making 5 times their salaries by doing odd jobs!!! Taking those odd jobs from Sabans and they not paying no kind of taxes. I do not understand how this can be allowed. Doesn’t no body see this or is it only me? and this is nothing compared to the wrong doings being allowed to happen on this.
One thing I forsee this 2015 election is going to do is bring out the jumbees that been hiding under the beds. Lots will be revealed wait and see.
