Alberta Federation of Labour Sponsored · Budget 2017 needs to protect public services and look forward to revenue reform “The failed revenue policy of successive conservative governments was the height of irresponsibility,” Alberta Federation of Labour president Gil McGowan said. “Relying so extensively on non-renewable resource revenue exposed our province’s essential public services directly to the volatility of world oil markets."-----------Julie Ali Alberta has a major spending problem but of course no one will bother to fix it because it might harm the chances of getting rehired. We can't pay for all the rich payouts to the executive staff at the places of spin any longer. ABCs-agencies, boards and commissions need major restructuring and cuts. There needs to be better performance by front line staff with more emphasis on education and staying within the lines of a profession. For example, an RN should not be doing Respiratory tech job. A nurse practitioner in my humble opinion should not be acting as physician. A midwife should work in a hospital with immediate access to medical help in emergencies. We are not interested in the past of just cutting alone of the Klein error but we are also not interested in massive public debt without deliverables and more money being asked. Why would we pay more in taxes when we get such poor performance from the government workers, the ABC folks and even in the private sector? We need to cut costs by cutting at the top where the pay is exorbitant and we need to cut the layers of staff that do nothing to increase deliverables. Privatization is coming with the Wildrose if the public sector doesn't listen to us now.------
