Four Seasons has 125 jobs for Bajans
Date March 02, 2008
MORE than 100 skilled Barbadians will have new jobs at the Four Seasons Resort from this week. And according to Four Season's principal developer Michael Pemberton, the matter of employing illegal Chinese workers had been settled for good. "There is no immigration issue here to resolve," Pemberton told the SUNDAY SUN after speaking at a presentation to the Barbados Cancer Society at his Clearwater Bay, St Michael offices Friday.
The Four Seasons Resort project at Black Rock, St Michael, came under heavy fire last year, for employing what some sources referred to as undocumented migrant workers. Pemberton, however, was quick to give assurances that all relevant work permits had now been granted. "This is a large project and for that we need large numbers of skilled workers. We will have by next week 125 local workers employed along with the 90 Chinese already on site."
Pemberton also said the Four Seasons project had been expanded to Grenada where investors had purchased Mount Hartman-Hog Island preserve, located on Grenada's southern tip, with intentions of creating an even larger Four Seasons.
