Cut jobs

I am pleased that the UDP is taking steps to reduce their spending. When there isn’t enough money for all their programmes you have to reduce or eliminate.

I still feel that they should take a good hard look at all government employees.

If every department cut back five and 10 per cent and did not raise any salaries, there would be more savings.

When times are good there is a lot of work, when times are slow the work load slows dramatically.

I find it hard to believe that all government workers are busy during the current economic climate. Private businesses have to reduce in order to survive. Why not government?
