Bill 148: the Fair Workplaces

Jul 22 2017

The Government of Ontario needs to establish clearly and firmly that Ontario needs businesses that are about more than profit. If companies and institutions can’t sustain fair and decent pay levels and workplaces, they should not be doing what they are doing. Exploitive business practice is not an adequate foundation for sustaining our society. We have long passed the point of everyone pitching in and making things work to a tipping point of exploitation creating a seductive situation that few employers can ignore. Bill 148 should be legislation that will require we stop “the race to bottom”. Our submission addresses the proposed legislation through gaps to be addressed, concerns about the burden on employees and integration with other legislation and provincial government programs.
