Home Letters The cry of a public servant under the David Granger Administration
I have been pondering for quite a while now on whether I should publicly express my disdain for the blatant lack of empathy and discrimination bestowed upon me by my employer at a Government agency. I’ve recently completed my MSc and am now serving the Government.
Since my return, just under a year, I haven’t received an added cent in remuneration. On the contrary, my workload doubled and I still have the same job as I initially had before my departure to study. And to add insult to injury, my supervisor is a fresh graduate who has just completed his bachelor from UG. And best of all, I had to train him.
I made several complaints to PSM about my mistreatment, but nothing was done. It’s as if you have no one to turn to but to endure. I must say, I’m quite disheartened and completely demotivated. My enthusiasm has now morphed into passive resistance. And I’m not the only one. I know of tens of other young professionals, both Indians and Afro-Guyanese, who are going through the same. There is no future under this Government for us. That is the sad reality.
