LL: I hope you can make it to the forum, spread the word around to all that you know. A point that is not talked too much is that Ontario Works, in junction with many of the not for profits, shuffle people into temp work, well actually, one does not really have a choice, if you do not accept the job they offer, even though you may not get paid for two to three weeks, because you have received an OW cheque, as they system deems this as training, you will be cut off Ontario Works. So for the workers that may exhaust their EI benefits and may have to access OW, will find out just how tyrannical the system really is.

It should be noted that many of the working poor are denied access to the foodbanks because they cannot prove that they are hungry. They do not accept pay stubs, if know what I am mean, only your papers from the system.
