The members of the SKNLP articulated their stance with regard to measures that should be taken going forward. While some citizens feel a sense of hurt because they never qualified to receive compensation, uncertainty looms as to how much monies were actually paid out. The disparity in the number of persons receiving payments and the amounts actually paid out has been a hot topic since Mr. Maitland made his formal presentation to the media.

While the average citizen is content with the distribution of this gratuitous payment, the St. Kitts and Nevis Labour Party maintained that all of the monies owed to former Sugar workers while they were at the helm was paid in full. Under the Team Unity led Administration, it is alleged that $27 million dollars still hasn’t been paid out to former Sugar workers from this gratuitous payment.
