(TORONTO) – New and expanded research shows that Hudak’s proposed cuts of 100,000 public sector jobs would have devastating effects across the province and lead to skyrocketing unemployment rates for many communities.
Smaller communities outside of Toronto and Ottawa that rely disproportionately on public sector jobs to keep their economies moving will be hit hardest by Hudak’s cuts. In some communities already reeling from the recent recession, the cuts will deepen economic hardship.
The summary below documents the estimated impacts of Hudak’s proposed 100,000 public service job cuts in an expanded list of towns and cities across Ontario:
|Town or City (Census Metropolitan Area)||Estimated job losses|
|Sault Ste. Marie||1,349|
