Public Service Employees

Posted on Mon, Dec 23, 2013 at 12:07 PM

In response to the letter carrier…

"...last year, our first year in the red, 7,402 performance bonuses were still paid out, so we can't be doing too badly."

That statement for me sums up what is wrong with CP, and the Public Service in general. Even when they fail financially, they still expect no impact to them..the tax payer is expected to sure up their pension plans,or provide additional funds for performance pay.

In the private sector when a business performs badly or the market goes down people loss jobs or asked to take pay cut, or pensions are impacted. Why can't public servatns and their livelihoods be put at risk just like everyone else? Why do tax payers at any costs have to shelter them from the risks?

Anybody? —Joe Taxpayer
