Provincial Budget Must Implement Sweeping COVID-19 Response Focused on Workers

The Saskatchewan Federation of Labour (SFL) is calling on the provincial government to implement a sweeping COVID-19 response focused on workers.

“Now is not the time for half-measures or boutique benefits that apply to narrow groups of people. It’s time for a comprehensive, sweeping response to COVID-19 that focuses on the real wealth-creators in our economy – working people,” said SFL President Lori Johb, “workers are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, and their families are starting to feel the economic pain of self-isolation, lost shifts, childcare, businesses closing their doors, and only limited responses from the provincial government to help,” she added.
