Concern Raised Over Potential Cutting Of STEP Program

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - There's concern the government plans to cut the Summer Temporary Employment Program when the provincial budget comes out next week.



For over four decades, the program has provided an hourly subsidy to Alberta non-profit organizations who hire post-secondary students.

 

During a stop in Lethbridge this week, Liberal Leader Raj Sherman agreed that cutting the program would be a mistake, saying the program provides so much educational and work experience that young people need and seven million dollars is not a lot of money when looking at the entire provincial budget.

 

U of L Students Union President Armin Escher adds that students realize the provincial budget is tight this year but it's hard to imagine the process that led to this program being placed at the top of the priority list to be cut.
