    This is it in a nutshell:

    “Salary increases for the near term will have to be funded by efficiency savings that exceed budget targets, and we will request our public officers and our union partners to work with us to identify and implement those savings.”

    How exactly?

    Debt service costs are $15,000.00 per HOUR 24/7/365. Let that sink in.

    My heart goes out (not) to the thousands of public servants who have worked over the last 2 years without a salary increase, but still received 100% of their pay and benefits. Contrast that to the thousands who would love to had that opportunity, but at best receive $500 a week. Very clear who is more respected and rewarded by this so called socially minded government, and why the constant blame it all on the OBA? Debt has nothing to do with the PLP. Must another election coming up soon.

      One day we’ll have a Budget Day that doesn’t spend a bunch of time blasting whatever the Opposition did.

      Not today.
      Probably not the next day either.

      Exactly. They just had 18 months off at full pay, and now they get a raise.
