The history in general of Barbados
- Jobless record
- The Nation, Sunday 27 February 2000. It is the first
time since records started being kept 25 years ago that
unemployment has fallen into single digits.
- Day Of Fun, Revelry In Congaline, Float
- The Nation, 2 May 2000. In a revived Caribbean
Congaline Carnival incorporating the traditional May Day
labour celebrations and the revelry synonymous with Kadooment,
Queen's Park was swarmed by Barbadians when T-shirt bands and
the floats of the Barbados Workers' Union (BWU) came together
for a spectacle of fun, color and revelry.
