Unemployment levels in Barbados are low and Labour Minister Senator Dr Esther Byer Suckoo says her ministry is committed to keeping them that way.

Speaking at a recent Democratic Labour Party facts meeting, she says unemployment levels are currently at nine percent and despite the economic challenges affecting the country, preserving jobs remains a priority.

The Labour Minister highlighted the party's commitment to putting legislation in place that's favourable to workers.

She believes it's particularly important to regulate the treatment of workers by international businesses who set up shop in Barbados.
