$15 And Fairness Campaign – A Day Of Action Across Ontario Tomorrow!

by

Today I’m happy to share a message from Marjorie, a BSW student on placement with us, and a representative of 15 And Fairness.

Do you care about any of the following?

$15 minimum wage?
Paid sick days?
Equal pay for equal jobs?
Fairness in the workplace?
Employment Act that protects ALL workers?

Come and join 15 And Fairness on Friday for a day of action!

The Ontario government is going to make changes with or without you now is the time to let them know what you think is important!

Meet us at Victoria Park by the fountain entrance closest to the Charles Street Bus Station. We will meet at 11:30am get organized and then march to City Hall! Come have your say! 11:30am to 1:00pm – BE THERE AND HAVE YOUR SAY!

Why a day of Action? It is not just about raising the minimum wage! The government is reviewing THE EMPLOYMENT STANDARDS ACT! How does this affect you? This is the legislation that controls not just your minimum wage, but the issue of sick leave.

Tired of going to work sick unable to stay home to get better? Come on down!

What about fair scheduling? What about employers flipping jobs to the lowest bidder and dropping everyone back down to minimum wage?

Do you work for an agency? Working beside someone who does the same job as you and makes $22/hr while you make $11.25?

Are you an independent contractor? Independent contractors are not covered under the law. We believe all workers should be covered by the law.

If you have none of these problems march with us in solidarity It is not just an income issue it is a social justice issue. Your voice deserves to be heard!
