Sask. Party slashes another 251 jobs

The Sask. Party’s decision to throw 251 custodial workers out of work is just another example of the people of Saskatchewan being forced to pay the price for the Sask. Party’s mismanagement, scandal and waste.

“There are over 12,000 fewer full-time jobs this year compared to last and now, 251 more Saskatchewan people and their families will be struggling harder to make ends meet,” said NDP Leader Trent Wotherspoon. “Yet again, the Sask. Party is cutting first and measuring after. They don’t even know how much they’ll save – if anything at all.”

Sask. Party plows ahead with more health care cuts

Today, with the release of their rushed health care report, the Sask. Party announced the next phase of their cuts. Communities across Saskatchewan have already been forced to struggle without adequate health care services and at least 90 front front-line care positions have already been cut from Regina and Saskatoon. Today’s announcement to scrap the 12 existing health regions down to one, will do nothing to undo the damage already caused by the Sask. Party’s mismanagement, scandal, and waste.
