Crown pay rising fast in Sask

According to Leader-Post columnist Murray Mandryk, between 2004 and 2008 the average pay for full time employees rose dramatically in Saskatchewan crown corporations. At SaskPower, it was 25.7%; at SaskEnergy, 16.5%; SaskTel, 25.7%; and SGI, 43.6%.

The average wages for full-timers? SaskPower, $92,378; SaskEnergy $91,832; SaskTel $75,563; and SGI, $72,258. Wow.

Mandryk is right to say, "...there is a danger that this administration is already falling into the trap of former Conservative governments (both federal and provincial) that cut taxes but failed to curtail spending."
