What are the rights of businesses that are established on the island, businesses that had to go through the ropes of obtaining a business license ect. Businesses that have employed foreigners to work and those same workers are now seeking similar business licenses to cut out their employers. How are we, the established businesses, to survive if this is permitted?
My question is how fair is this? Imagine if one business has 10 employees and all ten of them request a business license for the same type of business operation?
Saba is too small an island to permit this to continue. Is it then so, that someone that has one year or six months barely can do this? If that is the case there would be no work for none. How can the authorities protect us against this type of thing happening. Something should be done.
I beg those in authority to intervene and protect us business people.
