Your article on gas prices in Saturday’s paper (“Island gas prices drop”) makes me think of a better article. I would call it IRAC salaries drop.
“Treasury Board has announced a drop in IRAC salaries of $100 a month. It has also announced an increase in income tax rates and mandatory hours of work for IRAC appointees. Regular staff will not be affected by these changes.
When asked for a reason, Treasury Board said changes in wholesale salary factors during the past two weeks account for the salary and tax level adjustments. The next scheduled salary review will be on Oct.1.”
Emails for the actual wholesale levels were not returned.
One can always hope, eh?
