A Day of Action is planned across the province today to advocate for a $15 minimum wage and decent work laws.
Fifty demonstrations are planned to target ridings with Conservative MPPs after Premier Doug Ford announced his government is considering fully repealing Bill 148, the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act. Co-ordinator Pam Frache says Ford was elected on a promise to be “for the People” and cancelling the bill is a slap in the face for many workers who voted for him.Bill 148, introduced by the previous Liberal government, also increased the amount of paid sick days, emergency leave and vacation for employees. The Ontario Federation of labour has posted the demonstration locations on its website.
