VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/21/13 -- The Fraser Institute will release a new study comparing public- and private-sector wages in Alberta on Tuesday, January 22 at 6:30 a.m. (Mountain).
The study, Comparing Public and Private Sector Compensation in Alberta, examines wage and non-wage benefits for government employees (federal, provincial, and local) and private-sector workers. It calculates the "wage premium" (i.e., the degree to which public-sector wages exceed private-sector wages) using Statistics Canada's Labour Force Survey from April 2011.

The report also compares three components of non-wage benefits: pensions, early retirement, and job security.
"As the Alberta government struggles with deficits and finding ways to constrain spending, public-sector compensation is one area that should be closely scrutinized," said Jason Clemens, Fraser Institute executive vice-president and study co-author.
A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwire at 6:30 a.m. (Mountain) on Tuesday, January 22.
The full report will also be available as a free PDF download at : .
