Chairman of the Alliance for Change (AFC), Khemraj Ramjattan, had earlier this month described the salary being received by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) as outrageous.
Back then in an invited comment to the media Ramjattan said, “this is outrageous in the context of GuySuCo which is in a pathetic financial situation. This disparity as to what the bosses get and what ordinary sugar workers get is most extreme!”
However, we would like to propose that in the interest of the welfare of sugar workers GuySuCo's current CEO and Board should be sacked and immediately be replaced by a Board which is headed Ramjattan, with the following persons as Board members: Raphael Trotman, Peter Ramsaroop, Robert Corbin, Winston Murray, Everall Franklyn, Tarron Khemraj, Clive Thomas, Freddie Kissoon and David Patterson.
And further, out of their concerns for the current financial situation GuySuCo has found itself in these gentlemen will each receive a salary of GY$35,000 per month, in line with the average public servant.
We are sure that with these measures in place and prudent management by these 'learned' individuals GuySuCo would be restored to its glory days in quick time.
