Meredith: It seems you are preaching that those workers who are unskilled must live on starvation wages. Workers have every to organize to fight for better wages, benefits and pensions, despite what you think.

I do not know maybe the fact is that many of the so called skilled workers, like yourself, are afraid to actually stand up and fight for better wages, benefits and pensions. Since the rise of precarious work has reduced many workers to the point of wage slaves and the fact that many of the agencies and such who promote the precarious industry have denied workers their rights under both employment standards and occupational health and safety, they even deny workers their rights to WSIB.

Why is it that over 100,000,000 dollars in the last five years have been uncollectable for those workers who have gone through the process, meaning, the ministry found that wages were owed, yet the legislation is not quite strong enough for them to enforce collection.

Why is it that many workers who earn minimum wages are accessing services at the food banks.

You do not speak for workers and sounds like you are advocating for poverty to continue.
