OTTAWA, Feb. 27, 2018 /CNW/ - The 2018 federal budget is not aimed at benefiting working Canadians or retirees, despite the Liberal government's claim that the budget "puts people first."
"The finance minister says he will seek 'feedback' from Canadian pensioners and take an 'evidence-based' approach to retirement security. What more evidence does he need than the thousands of retirees from companies like Stelco and Sears, whose deferred wages were stolen by creditors through archaic laws protecting companies facing restructuring or bankruptcy?" said Ken Neumann, United Steelworkers (USW) National Director.
OTTAWA, Feb. 27, 2018 /CNW/ - The 2018 federal budget has blocked gender equality by failing to increase spending on early learning and child care, says Canada's national child care advocacy group.
"We are astounded that Finance Minister Bill Morneau has chosen to ignore the solid evidence that lack of access to affordable child care is the biggest barrier to women's equal participation in the paid labour force," said Morna Ballantyne, Executive Director of Child Care Now (formerly the Child Care Advocacy Association of Canada).
Child Care Now had called for a federal allocation to early learning and child care of $1 billion for 2018-19, including the money already allocated in the 2017 budget.
