Boycott Government Buses


It has been brought to my attention that the Jamaican government will be raising the cost for public transportation from $80 to $120. I immediately inquired if they will also be raising the minimum wage and general salary of the average Jamaican worker and was told no. Keep in mind that it was not so long ago that the government added tax to some basic food items. So what all this means is that life will become more difficult for the poorer class while the fat cats will not be affected in any way because this is just additional pennies to them.

I am pleading to all Jamaicans who take public transportation to boycott the government buses (the big yellow and white buses). Please show the government that you will not take it anymore!!! No matter how long it takes, wait for a robot taxi or one of the mini vans that’s privately owned. Remember that people can only walk on you; belittle you etc. if you allow them to. Take a stand now!
