Kenney just fired 25,000 education workers

Just two weeks ago, Adriana LaGrange, Minister of Education for the Kenney government, said:

“My department and I will work with school authorities throughout this process, and school authorities will receive their full allotment of funding for the 2019-2020 school year.”

They lied.

Now, 25,000 education assistants, bus drivers, administrators, substitute teachers, and custodial workers have been thrown out of work by this government at a time when families are struggling to make ends meet because of COVID-19.

This is on top of lay-offs in the provincial government, at post-secondary institutions, and by our municipal governments due to Kenney’s budget cuts.

Laying people off during a global pandemic is heartless, reckless, and cruel. We can’t let it happen.
