As workers in Barbados brace for continued cuts in the public service, a comparison is being made regarding the future of over three thousand workers employed under the NICE Project here. The three year program began in 2012 with a deployment of some 3500 workers deployed in both the private and public sectors.

The project was implemented to address the unemployment situation in St Lucia and to provide hands on training and experience to individuals participating in the program.

Project coordinator Perry Thomas who has described the continuity of the project as a policy question that is determined by the government, is hopeful that individuals employed through the NICE program can be permanently absorbed into the workforce. So far, the NICE office has been receiving positive reviews about the performance of most workers. He is also pleased with the level of support from the private sector for the project.

Over three thousand five hundred people attached to the NICE program are currently employed within the public and private sectors
