He accused Government of “building up an army” to possibly serve at the “pleasure of the government”.He urged Government to immediately do away with contract hiring of workers and to assimilate current ones into the public service and for the pay scales to be fixed to avoid them being “bunched”.Minister Westford, making a point that contract workers are prevalent in government agencies and is an option exercised, said that even at Parliament, there were 56 contract workers being paid comparative salaries to what public servants are receiving…the only difference is that the contract workers would receive their gratuity twice yearly.She demanded an apology for suggestions that contract workers may not be qualified for jobs.
