Sask: Was anybody actually listening to wage mandate?

First, MLAs broke their own wage mandate by voting themselves a raise beyond the 0-1-1. Then they gave teachers 2-2-2. Then SGEU -- the province's largest public sector union and the only one that took a 0-1-1 wage settlement -- was given another raise in a renogiated contract. Then, we learn, that the 0-1-1 didn't apply to crown management employees. What was the point of all this? They only thing the government accomplished was a whole lot of public sector acrimony.

We can't be surprised, David. Since Calvert became Premier, public spending in Saskatchewan has gone through the roof.
Saskatchewan has a spending problem, a big one.
