Limlair Farm Workers Facing Inhuman Conditions

Field workers at the up for commercialization Limlair Farm are adamant that if there is one area that couldn’t deteriorate further in the operation is that of the humiliating latrine facilities which they are forced to use on a daily basis.

The workers there are fuming at the inhumane condition of the latrine, which is barricaded by galvanised sheeting.   Some of the workers pointed out that there are times when there is no toilet paper available for the workers after using the latrine.  One worker pointed out that he was one day forced to use a stone to clean himself after defecating.  

The condition of the latrine is unacceptable and according to one worker the lone latrine, which sits close to the goat and pigpens is the only one for the use of both male and female.  

While the workers have openly expressed concern over their future with the facility when it’s commercialized they are hoping that conditions would improve under new management.   Only recently several government officials including Minister of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs Hon. Elvin Nimrod and Senator Simon Stiell spoke at a consultation forum on the present status of the farm and the structures in place for the transition process.
