Premier and cabinet to take a pay cut

Premier Jim Prentice has announced that he, along with his cabinet ministers, will be taking a 5 per cent pay cut.

The reduction, which will save the province around $200,000 this year, goes into effect on Sunday.

A motion is expected next week to pass similar pay cuts for back benchers and opposition members, a move that would increase the savings to roughly $600,000.

There are concerns that this move means that those in public sector unions should start expecting similar pay cuts.
