Saskatchewan down 5,600 full-time jobs since last year

With their budget, the Sask. Party hiked taxes, made deep cuts, and hurt industries across the province. Now, a month after the Sask. Party released their budget, there are 5,600 fewer jobs in Saskatchewan than a year ago.

“Since the Sask. Party formed government, the number of Saskatchewan people who can’t find work has doubled to 40,000. Instead of using their budget to create jobs and opportunities for families, the Sask. Party has chosen to further hurt important industries and Saskatchewan people,” said NDP Jobs, Skills and Training Critic Warren McCall. “There’s no two ways about it, the Sask. Party’s mismanagement, scandal and waste is costing Saskatchewan jobs.”
