The Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) is extremely disappointed that Potash Corp. has laid off 440 employees, or 18 percent of its provincial workforce, just before Christmas.
This is a terrible time. Many families made decisions to buy homes based on the idea that they would have a family member working in the province’s potash industry.
Potash Corp. should have planned this better.
However, it is very good that Premier Brad Wall is offering skills training to the workers, and hopefully better days lie ahead for the laid off workers and their families.
