If we could surmount the security issue in order to gain the investors trust, we should welcome the factory jobs as they create a form of economic stability and revenue for the people.

$6.00 a day is still better than $0.00 a day. As they gained seniority and experience, Haitians will be in a better position to ask for more money and benefits.The Chinese are new comers, hopefully they will not acquire bad habits from the past...Factory work in general is not a money-making career but it beats unemployment.

I am all for factory-service oriented jobs as long as they do not interfere with agricultural development...

We must proceed with our own agricultural development.

We have to encourage our local farmers.

We must support Haitian farmers economically and politically in order to ensure our own economic growth...

Farming will help in alleviating the over-crowded problems in the capital.

It could also help in the over dependence on Port-Au-Prince.
