#36 INTERVIEW – Colin Craig, SecondStreet.org

Millions of Canadians are struggling with job losses and pay cuts, but what about government employees? We interview SecondStreet.org’s Colin Craig about his latest report: The Last Government Pay Cut. SecondStreet.org asked governments to show when the last time they cut bureaucrats’ salaries. The answers are oddly surprising and predictable at the same time.   The report is available here: https://www.secondstreet.org/2020/08/26/the-last-government-pay-cut/ Like this show?
