Canadians won’t stand by while governments’ erode hard-earned wages
North York Mirror
To the editor:
Despicable. At all levels of government, the right wing in this country are mounting a concerted effort to demoralize working people and their unions simply to please their friends on Bay Street.
It’s not enough they sit idly by and watch what is left of the middle class erode before their eyes. They are vehement in their ideology to put unfetered control of the workplace back in the hands of the country’s employers.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Conservative leader Tim Hudak, Mayor Rob Ford and others are badly underestimating working Canadians.
It’s true, as it relates to most things political, we are a passive society, however, try stripping away a workers hard-earned wages, pension and benefits and all hell will break loose.
Canadian workers won’t stand idly by and let that happen.
