People in Saskatchewan are realizing that they just can’t trust Scott Moe to protect families during a pandemic. Even before the pandemic hit, families were struggling to pay their bills, and the pandemic has only made things harder.
New reports show exactly how Scott Moe’s dangerous cuts have hurt Saskatchewan people:
- 53 percent of Saskatchewan and Manitoba residents are $200 or less away from being broke by the end of the month.
- 44 percent of families were already in this situation in March.
- 41 percent of Saskatchewan residents surveyed said their financial situation is worse off now than last year.
Saskatchewan families are living paycheque to paycheque, and Scott Moe chose to increase the PST and make ordinary families pay an additional $700 per year.
When Scott Moe was told that Saskatchewan was in a recession prior to COVID-19, leaving families stretched and stressed, he said, “That’s news to me.”
And what is Scott Moe’s record when it comes to people struggling with affordability and access to care?
- Leaving Saskatchewan workers with the lowest minimum wage in Canada.
- Sending contracts and jobs out of province instead of investing in jobs for companies and workers right here in Saskatchewan.
- Dangerous cuts to healthcare during a pandemic.
Scott Moe’s plans will further undermine Saskatchewan’s recovery.
It’s time for a change that puts people first. Saskatchewan deserves better.
