Premier not fighting for all jobs

Premier Wall has his dander up. He is not pleased there will be job losses at Potash Corp. I agree with the Premier on that point, every worker needs a decent pay cheque.

But the Premier is contradicting himself. Is it true Mr. Premier your government has announced the plan for privatizing health care laundry services in Saskatchewan? Why would we allow bunch of dedicated public service employees (in this case mostly women) to be booted out the door and Saskatchewan taxpayer dollars to be shipped to Alberta?

Premier Wall and his government seem to want to go to war with some of the workers in our province, while publicly supporting others.

Come clean Mr. Premier, tell the people exactly what is your plan for the public service in Saskatchewan.

    Not sure why thinking spending TAX dollars on Alberta employees is "left wing" and don't act like Brad Wall is in any way fiscally conservative as I believe he increased spending 30 % over NDP levels in his first term! He also is running large serial deficits as per the provincial auditor! Just don't get a government service like laundry being shipped out of province!

    The usual drivel from a NeoCon. Support your donators at the expense of the general public.

    Henry, Henry Henry, There you go again wasting printers ink and paper.. Prenier Wall is running your great Province like a business should be run. You and your Left Wing Loonies would be the first one to scream like a Banshee if your taxes kept going up to support money losing operations. Dwayne Thompson

    So taxpayers are paying for government services to be done in Alberta? That's just dumb

    Thanks to Henry Neufeld for the letter and I could not agree more, in fact I submitted a similar letter to the Booster a couple days back. Brad Wall went to bat for PCS (in fairness, all politicians of all stripes in Sask opposed the BHP takeover and Goodale was the only Sask MP to say anything, but I digress) and PCS says "thanks very much for preventing our takeover, now to lay off 400 workers in Saskatoon area to maximize already multi-billion dollar profits" "oh, and thanks for keeping royalties so low that we at PCS can turn billion dollar profits while you turn billion dollar deficits Mr Wall" Wall also axed a very cheap film tax credit, turning his back on 1,000 local jobs for no good reason. Now, Brad Wall and the Sask Party are using our own Tax Dollars to pay Alberta workers minimum wage, rather than a still relatively meager $15 an hour to have, as you point out, a largely female work force based in Saskatchewan. Brad Wall seems to care little about anyone but big oil and big potash in Saskatchewan, but shipping tax dollars to directly pay Alberta workers? Now that's down right ridiculous! Nick Henselmeier
