Good-paying jobs will be lost
The P.E.I. Federation of Labour says Charlottetown will suffer when good-paying jobs held by Canada Post employees are lost through eliminating door-todoor delivery.
Carl Pursey, P.E.I. Federation of Labour president, says his group was pleased to see the City of Charlottetown pass two resolutions against eliminating the service.
“This is just another way of attacking good-paying jobs as we have seen happen with jobs and services with EI, Veterans Affairs and many other departments,” Pursey said.
“With the loss of more federal government jobs, the whole city, province and country will suffer. Workers earning near minimum wage do not buy new cars, houses, go out to eat or do anything other than barely scrape by.
“This also does nothing to keep our Island economy and business going. These depend on decent-paying jobs.” International recognition, higher earning potential and instant credibility are just a few of the things you can look forward to when you become a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA).
