Contemplating the rational thinking and actions of certain factions of the Guyanese society can be exasperating. Is unemployment a problem that is facing our nation? Undoubtedly! Is the Smart City Solutions company creating jobs for our youth? Yes. Then why are there individuals that do not understand the concept of survival. Yes, we are fighting for survival.With unemployment at unprecedented levels globally who says our beloved Guyana is so privileged to not be subjected to the powers that are and the powers that be?
Wake up and smell the coffee! Crime’ is a big problem. Poverty is a big problem. “Unprofessional-ism” is running amuck. And we need to embrace the change; we need to be the change. The survival of the fittest, and the fittest are those that swallow their pride and are courageous in the execution of their duties; the pioneers of betterment for themselves and a nation. The young men and women that have chosen the honest ways of earning the dollar are ridiculed and harassed while doing so.
I am appalled at such acts by fellow Guyanese to shame these young people. The parking wardens did not design a contract, they did not sign on behalf of the citizenry and I’m sure they didn’t fashion the by-laws. However, what they have done is chosen to be productive members of our society. The next time you try to shame a young person for working at an honest job no matter what that may be, do some reflecting and soul searching and ask yourself, if you had to put food on the table would it have mattered?
