Retiree Chairperson’s Report– February 2018
Spring is almost here as is the next Ontario provincial election. Ontario’s Tories are set to elect a new leader in a couple of weeks. They seem to agree with each other on just about everything including legislation to stop the minimum wage from rising to $15 an hour next year. These are the same old Tories wanting to keep Ontario’s working poor living in poverty. This is the same party that froze the minimum wage for 8 years when they were in power. So at least they are consistent. If they get elected you can be sure that stopping another increase in the minimum wage will be just one of the rotten apples they will be giving the people of Ontario.
