This week the federal civil service went on strike. Since 2015 the number of federal employees has ballooned 30.7 percent, growing from 257,000 to 336,000. Total compensation for federal civil servants has grown 52% from $38 billion to $58 billion. On a broader level, 86.7% of new jobs created in Canada since 2020 have been in the public sector.
Do you believe that there should be dramatic cuts to the federal civil service in order to achieve better balance between public and private sector employment?
