delayed writing this article for some timeas I wanted to weigh in on a few articlesthat I read in the Jamaica Gleaner earlierthis year. In one such article was titled,“Thwaites cements more partnerships withChina,” it was said that China needs a num-ber of English teachers. It also said the Jamaican governmentwould like to fill some of those vacancieswith teachers who are perhaps retired or arequalified but haven't been able to find jobs.Additionally, Jamaicans would have anopportunity to learn Mandarin.I was excited reading about Jamaica’sefforts to work with China to provide jobsfor Jamaican teachers, and prompted by afriend I decided to contact the Ministry of Education in Jamaica. My friend said heinformed Jamaican Education MinisterRonald Thwaites that I would be calling. However, I was not able to speak withMr. Thwaites. Instead, I spoke with one of his consultants. I explained to the consult-ant who I was and what I did. I explainedto her the discrimination I faced while try-ing to place Jamaican teachers in China.I informed her that I sought theMinistry’s help in getting visas forJamaican teachers to work in China. Afterfive minutes of conversation I realized Iwas at a dead end. She informed me thatthe Jamaican government doesn’t workwith just anyone. She wanted to know howJamaican teachers had found me. She also told me that the deal theywere working on with China was a solidone and the Chinese representative hadbeen to Jamaica on many occasions.Additionally, she said, they had Chineseteachers already teaching Mandarin inJamaica. She requested that I send her mybusiness registration detail and I obligedher. It has been a few months and she hasnot sent confirmation that she received myemail.With this current deal in place I am notsure why Chinese teachers are already inJamaica teaching Mandarin and Jamaicansteachers are not in China teaching English. I do hope that Jamaicans in generalwill get opportunities in China as China hasa great presence in Jamaica. It is up to theleaders to assure that their people areequally represented and treated fairly.

s we approach the ending of the year2013, most people are busy reflectingon the past while considering what to do forthe New Year. Whereas a few people maybe rejoicing about their successes, for thevast majority the year was filled with morechallenges for both their business and per-sonal undertakings. Outgoing Mayor Mike Bloomberg hasbeen praised for his overall management of the city including keeping the city’s pover-ty rate at the same level (below 21 per cent)since 2000. In fact, data shows New YorkCity is the only Top-20 city that did notexperience an increase in its poverty ratesince the 2000 U.S. Census. The smoking ban, gun control, theoverhauled city waterfront as well aschanges in the city laws were among theso-called winners that enabled a third termfor Bloomberg. However, the city’s low-income popu-lation that comprises of mainly African-American and Latino citizens continues toface hardships, particularly in the areas of housing and food. As revealed in the Community ServiceSociety’s 2013 annual survey, the numberof people skipping meals because there wasnot enough money to buy food increasedfrom 21 to 27 percent. There was also anincrease in the number of poor NewYorkers falling behind on their rent ormortgage payments – up from 24 per centto 31 per cent. And 38 percent of low-income, working women report cuts inwages, tips or hours up from 28 percent ayear ago.African-American and Latino-ownedbusinesses including restaurants, clubs andbars, hair salons are experiencing high fail-ure rate. We may attribute the failures toincreased competition and a crappy econo-my, however in our evaluation, both Cityand State regulations are also the majorcontributing factors. As we approach the new-year and wel-come Mayor Bill de Blasio, this is a goodtime to review and fix the challengesaffecting our personal endeavors and busi-ness pursuits. We will be urging de Blasio during2014 and his term in office to providestrong leadership and keep his promises of providing the environment for business togrow as well as improving the living standof all New Yorkers. Nonetheless, we may only guaranteepersonal success and prosperity, if weapply hard work, dedication and commit-ment to our endeavors.
