Today’s sparse throne speech leaves a lot to be desired for working families. In the last few days we have seen the Pallister government continue to put the needs of working families last. Public accounts data shows they have underfunded the health care system again for the 2018/19 fiscal year. Just yesterday, it was announced that Manitoba’s minimum wage workers will continue to be kept below the poverty line because of this government’s failure to act.

There was nothing in this throne speech for families worried about health care, education, affordable and accessible child care, or any of the other services that they rely on.
