This study explores the impact of the federal government’s 2010 and 2011 budget cutbacks and finds between 60,100 and 68,300 jobs will be lost as a result. The author also identifies areas that are already seeing cuts and may see more of the same, and raises serious concerns about the government's lack of transparency about what will be axed, and why.
