PC's more worried about the Wildrose Alliance than workers: AFL

The Alberta Federation of Labour says the government's new budget shows the Progressive Conservative Party is more concerned about the Wildrose Alliance than it is about workers, families and communities.

A-F-L President Gil McGowan says the budget contains 6.6-billion dollars in construction spending, but spending on services will not increase, which will mean a cut when inflation is taken into account. He says there is little point in building new health facilities and schools if there is no money to hire staff to run them.

McGowan says the budget lacks a plan to deal with the billions of dollars in resource royalty revenues the government is not collecting from energy companies.
