Haiti Tourism Plan - Low wage tourist jobs - Are they bringing anything other than low wage hospitality jobs?

Donna - January 8 2014, 8:35 PM

I have been to Ile a Vache; I have also been to Mole St Nicholas, Basin Bleu, Jeremie, Desarmes and points in between in Haiti.

If there is a plan to "develop" Ile a Vache, people should look at the reality.

Are they bringing anything other than low wage hospitality jobs?

Are they improving the water supply, planting trees, planning schools or clinics to serve the area. Low wage tourist jobs are not, I hope, the answer to our problems
