Federal workers’ buyouts could reach $2B

The Harper government’s plan to slash an estimated 30,000 public service jobs over the next three years includes hefty golden handshakes that could leave some federal workers laughing all the way to the bank.

For instance, CBC News has learned that a public servant laid off after only one year in the government will be entitled to a severance package of almost six months’ pay, plus up to $11,000 to go back to school for a couple of years.

The Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation isnt impressed.
