AB: Fair Government Pay and Pensions

Alberta

To the Premier of Alberta:

The average Alberta bureaucrat costs taxpayers $102,000 a year, and 10.3% more than their equivalent in the private sector. Bringing these salaries and benefits in line with the private sector would save taxpayers $1.4 billion a year.

Government “defined-benefit” pension plans are far richer than most retirements provided in the private sector, and all too often require a bailout by taxpayers.

We the undersigned call on the Alberta government to bring the pay, perks and pensions of government workers into line with the realities of the private sector.

You have the power to change who influences politics in our country: big unions, big corporations and government-funded special interest groups can be challenged by the contributions of thousands of individual taxpayers who care to make a difference.
