Revenue,
 
spending
 
&
 
public
sector
 
wages
 
When
 
it
 
comes
 
to
 
taxes
 
and
 
royalties,
 
wage
 
for
 
public
 
sector
 
workers
 
and
 
levels
 
of 
 
spending
 
on
 
public
 
services,
 
we’ve
 
heard
 
a
 
lot
 
of 
 
misinformation,
 
some
 
obfuscation
 
 
and
 
even
 
outright
 
lies.
 
It’s
 
time
 
to
 
set
 
the
 
record
 
straight.
 
Alberta
 
is
 
in
 
the
 
middle
 
of 
 
the
 
pack
 
when
 
it
 
comes
 
to
 
public
 
spending
 
per
 
person.
 
The
 
same
 
is
 
true
 
for
 
public
 
revenue
 
generated
 
by
 
taxes
 
and
 
royalties.
 
Even
 
though
 
our
 
economy
 
is
 
running
 
red
 
hot
 
and
 
we
 
have
 
an
 
abundance
 
of 
 
valuable
 
resources,
 
provinces
 
like
 
Saskatchewan
 
and
 
Manitoba
 
collect
 
more
 
public
 
revenue
 
per
 
person
 
than
 
we
 
do.
 
Sure,
 
wages
 
for
 
government
 
workers,
 
doctors
 
and
 
nurses
 
are
 
high,
 
but
 
wages
 
are
 
high
 
for
 
everyone
 
here
 
in
 
Alberta
 
compared
 
to
 
other
 
provinces.
 
In
 
fact,
 
the
 
average
 
hourly
 
wage
 
is
 
about
 
$3.50
 
higher
 
in
 
Alberta
 
than
 
in
 
the
 
rest
 
of 
 
Canada.
 
And
 
when
 
it
 
comes
 
to
 
government
 
spending
 
as
 
a
 
share
 
of 
 
the
 
overall
 
economy,
 
we
 
rank
 
dead
 
last.
 
To
 
put
 
it
 
another
 
way,
 
despite
 
the
 
myth
 
of 
 
overspending,
 
no
 
other
 
province
 
spends
 
less
 
on
 
public
 
services
 
as
 
a
 
share
 
of 
 
its
 
economy
 
than
 
Alberta.
 
In
 
a
 
province
 
as
 
strong
 
and
 
economically
 
vibrant
 
as
 
Alberta,
 
why
 
do
 
we
 
keep
 
running
 
out
 
of 
 
money
 
for
 
vital
 
public
 
services
 
like
 
education
 
and
 
health
 
care?
 
The
 
facts
 
are
 
clear:
 
It’s
 
because
 
we
 
have
 
a
 
revenue
 
problem,
 
not
 
a
 
spending
 
problem.
 
And
 
the
 
only
 
solution
 
is
 
revenue
 
reform.
