Alberta Premier Ralph Klein rolled back the amount of money the government spent on public sector salaries. The goal was to save 300 million dollars. Klein said it would be up to hospitals and school boards how to apply the cutback. He warned that if they tried to fight the cutbacks they could be faced with layoffs. (The cutbacks went into effect January 1, 1994 for health care workers and April 1, 1994 for everybody else.)
