“Several case studies have shown that competition between public and private sector unions and businesses can net taxpayer savings of between 10 and 30 per cent,” Jones said.
Jones, PC critic for Government Services at Queen’s Park, cited a 2007 study by the San Diego Institute for Policy Research and Reason that estimated average savings from managed competition in the range of 10 to 25 per cent.
