Wales is facing "very serious times" as it prepares for spending cuts which will hit public services, Finance Minister Jane Hutt has warned.

Ms Hutt is starting a tour of the country to seek the views of people who use and provide public services.

Ms Hutt said the assembly government had been preparing for a "very tough" budget settlement from the UK Government.

Official statistics showed that 344,000 people in Wales worked in the public sector, or 27.5% of all employees

*gasp*

I knew it was high but that's amazing

Jeff Randall on Sky News tonight did an item about Merthyr where a third of all people living there are on some form of benefit.

Wales has been shafted for 500 years but basically when the industry was closed down in the 80s a large part of the workforce was put onto benefits and never came off.

If you have a third of people on benefits in a town and you then start cutting public sector jobs then the place is never ever going to recover.
