Hundreds of public service employees staged a noisy protest today at the New Brunswick legislature, demanding the government back off on many of its austerity measures. The group included teachers fighting job cuts, and hospital workers upset over plans to privatize some services. Norma Robinson, the president of the New Brunswick Council of Hospital Unions says New Brunswickers are upset. (But Finance Minister Roger Melanson says the province needs to find savings in order to eliminate a structural deficit of 400-million dollars per year and start reducing the debt.)
