Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On Burning Rubbish

Burning Rubbish
Its about time we had a law that prohibits burning of rubbish in peoples lawns or yards and road sides. But hold the phone, don't we already have that lay in the city and town bylaws.

BUT, laws are good as long as they have teeth and the people who enacted them enforce them.

But I am for the law of burning. One way to get this  law tobe effective is to empower the citizens to report his neighbour.Burning not only is a danger but a health hazard. If you hang your clothes out and someone burns, you will get smoke smelling clothes.

And the worst is the people who suffer from breathing problems. 

Pay Issues

A report says " Findings, according to a Ministry of Information statement released yesterday, concluded that salaries were not only inadequate but had failed to attract and keep the best candidates.

Another similar situation are nurses, their salary isn't enough to keep them in Fiji.  

And what about our police officers, they work long hours in the rain, collecting dead bodies, and they have to deal with drunks and violent people,how about raising their pay.

Allen Lockington is a self-employed customs agent and business consultant who has regular articles published in Fiji. I thank Allen for permission to reprint some of them in this political blog. They remind us that life goes on, whatever the political situation. And it's good to know that.
