LABOUR DAY 2013 ROUND-UP: LIME and Digicel staffers put their hands to work for worthy causes + PM Simpson-Miller urges greater productivity

Digicel Jamaica staffers, along with their new CEO, Barry O'Brien, got busy on Thursday, heading to the Downtown-based Denham Town Golden Age Home to render some much-appreciated clean-up work and refurbishing efforts. "We gave the home a much-need facelift," says a source, "and it warmed our hearts to give back." 

Offering a timely reminder that trees are important to the environment, members of the close-knit LIME Jamaica family, including the company's newest brand ambassadors Donald 'Iceman' Anderson and Ity & Fancy Cat); foundation deputy chair Clive Forbes; head of retail, Stephen Price; and foundation executive assistant, Shelly-Ann O'Connor put their back into it, as they tilled the soil and planted several new trees at the Homestead Place of Safety for Girls in Stony Hill, St. Andrew. The all-day project was completed at an estimated cost of $600K, and included the donation of two laptop computers. 

Meantime, in her 2013 Labour Day message, PM Portia Simpson-Miller stresses the timeless importance of good old-fashioned hard work and honesty. "If we are not more productive as a people; if we do not give a fair day's work for a fair day's pay; if we do not commit to do our very best and to produce at international standards, then we would be condemning future generations to economic failure," she emphasizes. "We salute our workers who have made many sacrifices for the nation. We salute, in particular, public-sector workers who have, in the national interest, foregone wage increases. Your sacrifice has been an important contribution for laying the foundation for a sustainable future."
