Work Ethic in Jamaica

by Wellesley Gayle
(Montego Bay, Jamaica)

This one was shared with me by my 'ole' pal, Andrea Scott.




The population of Jamaica is 2.7 million.
1 million are retired.
That leaves 1.7 million to do the work.

There are .7 million in school.
Which leaves 1 million to do the work.

Of this there are .3 million employed by the current government to do nothing.
Leaving .7 million to do the work.

50 thousand are in the armed forces preoccupied with trying to get tax payers money and doing nothing.
Which leaves 650,000 thousand to do the work.

Take from that total the 300,000 thousand people who do not work.
And that leaves 350,000 to do the work.

At any given time there are 200,000 people in hospitals.
Leaving 150,000 to do the work.

Now, there are 149,998 people in prisons.
That leaves just two people to do the work.
You and me.

And there you are,
sitting on your butt,
at your computer, reading jokes.
