Political analysts—PNM should be worried by Warner's return
"My personal position is simply that Mr Warner's presence on the platform was to awaken the dormant UNC supporters who would have fallen by the wayside, those who don't strongly support the party and probably those who would not have gone out to vote on election day.

"His return is not necessarily to win support from outside the UNC's ranks, but rather to get the UNC supporters to turn out on election day," he said

Party done for ILP
The IP was formed in July 2013 by Warner when he was not re-selected by the UNC as its candidate for Chaguanas West.

Economist Marlene Attzs: 'Minimum wage increase comes with pros and cons'
"By lifting the wages of low-income workers, increasing the minimum wage can potentially reduce poverty rates, especially among households that rely on minimum-wage jobs as their primary source of income," she said.

She added that there will be instances of increased consumer spending since low-wage workers tend to spend their additional income on goods and services.This can ultimately lead to economic growth and benefit local businesses.

However, she also pointed out the negative aspects of such an increase, saying higher wages affects the bottomline of businesses.

"Employers, particularly small businesses, many of which may still be in a post-pandemic recovery mode, may face increased labour costs due to higher wages. These higher costs can impact their profitability, especially if they operate on narrow profit margins.

"Some businesses may respond by reducing employee hours, cutting jobs or increasing the price of their goods and services in order to compensate for the increased labour costs."
