A human resource crisis is developing in the disability services field. Community agencies which support disabled Albertans find it extremely difficult to hire and retain staff. The reason is that funding for wages is too low. Similarly, wages for community staff are significantly lower than the wages paid for similar staffing positions in government. In spite of the efforts of government to provide wage increases in the past, the actual gap between community and government wage rates continues to expand.
