There was a lunchtime dance party for government worker bees in Alberta as Public Service Week kicked off in Edmonton.
Did you know there was such a thing as Public Service Week? I didn’t either until I saw Premier Notley’s tweet declaring the week long fête that included video of a choreographed lunchtime dance routine by government workers at the Federal Building in Edmonton.
Watch as I share that video with you. It’s the most cringeworthy thing you’ll see today.
The government is celebrating themselves for doing stuff functioning adults do everyday, like showing up to work and doing their jobs in exchange for a pay cheque.
Everyday is public sector day when the shrinking private sector is covering the cost of their cushy, overly secure careers and generous pensions.
When you break down the current unemployment numbers, coupled with the growth in the public sector, it’s easy to see why the conditions are nothing to celebrate.
In fact, we should be very worried.
