Good-pay­ing jobs will be lost

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE PROVINCE -

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).
