Jamaica poverty ratings worsens !

SOME 1.1 million Jamaicans are living below the poverty line, fuelling an intergenerational crisis.

“We must understand that the lower the country’s ranking, the better it is for them, Barbados is the lowest ranked country at 36, which means they are doing something right. Jamaica was ranked 79th in 2011, but since 2013, has moved up to 86th, which means as far as poverty is concerned, we are getting worse … Haiti however, comes after Jamaica with a ranking of well over 100th.

They have got to be lying, because since the PNP has been in power, they have rescued the economy and turn things around and Jamaicans are in a much better position today, than they were in 2011 ( according to the PNP).

love the poor

  1. When Madam PM is finished with us, she will have over 2M of the 2.7M Jamaicans to love. How cool is that!
