The fight against the Phoenix Pay system has made it’s way to Regina.
Federal public service workers were out protesting Wednesday morning on the corner of Victoria and Arcola Avenues.
Protest spokesperson Marianne Hladun said the Trudeau government hasn’t been able to pay employees for over two years.
“We’re here to let the public know that we continue to go to work everyday, and the Liberal government can’t figure out how to pay us.
The system, launched over two years ago, is on track to cost taxpayers over a billion dollars.
Hladun says the decision has been the wrong one right from the get-go, when the federal government implemented the system in 2016.
“From that point forward people have not gotten paid, people have received tens of thousands of dollars of over payments, and then the government expects us to pay back the gross amount. We have people that randomly will not get a paycheck, or if they do get access to emergency pay it’s clawed back on the next pay,” Hladun said.
Protests have been taking place across the country.
