"Do you believe the Appleton Sugar Estate, in Siloah, has the scope to create enough job opportunities for the young people in this section of the parish?


"No, I don't think so. With the modernisation of equipment, they will employ fewer people because, where they had four workers, they might now only need two." - Lester McFarlane

"Yes, I do believe so. Based on the plans they have coming with, new job opportunities are opening up. I know that a lot of people are now dropping off job letters there." - Kemonie Ball

"Honestly, I didn't even know what is happening there now. The last I can remember was a sign that said they were closed." Antonique Williams
