What 'Boom' Are You Referring To Premier Wall??
If you listen to Saskatchewan's top salesman, Premier Brad Wall will try and convince you that the province is simply booming under his stewardship. What is not mentioned is the fact that for February, March and April, jobs and employment actually decreased in Saskatchewan. There was a slight reversal in the month of May with a paltry 2400 jobs created (mostly tax funded positions hiring University students on their summer break).
Wall's promises of a so called 'boom' has petered out. In its wake, Saskatchewan finds itself wondering what all the 'unfettered free-market' hype was about.
Speculative property values have driven up rental costs and left lists of houses unsold with over inflated prices. Promised growth in the economy has been paltry at best.
The Saskatchewan Party's all out war on organized labour has brought on strikes with the province's teachers and health care workers.
You really have to wonder, what 'boom' is Premier Wall referring to in his overly theatrical speeches?
