Today on MORNING BLEND:
Bahamian fishermen discuss the seriousness of the poaching problem in the country. Commercial Fishers Alliance President Adrian LaRoda (pictured, far right) and Vice President Keith Carroll (2nd from left) share their concerns that Dominican fishermen are severely depleting fishery resources in he southern Bahamas, and that penalties for poachers are not stiff enough.
“In The News”, the Police Staff Association says because of the 12-hour shifts, police officers are owed “probably in the millions” in compensation for the extra hours worked. Listeners debate whether this would have been seen as an “essential service” during a time of emergency, and whether they would and should be entitled to compensation.
