Foster wants unemployment blame game to end

Longtime Caymanian businessman Woody Foster says he accepted the co-chair position on the Premier’s “Ready2Work KY” task force because he believes the solution the country’s unemployment problem will only be found if everyone chooses to take some responsibility and stop blaming others.

“Just talking about it isn’t going to change anything,” he said, “It’s going to take a lot of work on the private sector’s part, the government’s part, the students’ part, everybody. Whether it was McKeeva (Bush) in his term or the current Premier, we’ve been dealing with this for decades. And it’s not fair to blame any and everybody. We’re all a part of this and we all need to work together to get this done.”

The “Ready2Work KY” initiative is said to include government funded internships to help unemployed Caymanians get work experience that can lead to permanent jobs. The task force appointed by Premier (Hon.) Alden McLaughlin includes four other private sector members and two government officials.
