Stop the $6 million cut to Employment Standards enforcement. Stop wage theft.
Despite the fact that workplace violations are at a crisis, the government wants to cut $6 million out of Employment Standards enforcement.
Since we launched our action alert about the cuts to Employment Standards enforcement last week, emails have been streaming in to Premier Dalton McGuinty urging him to stop the cuts. If you have not yet sent an email, please do so today and forward this information to your networks!
Wage theft is at a crisis.
People need confidence that when they go to work they will be paid. However, every day we are seeing workers not getting paid their wages. In a recent survey of workplace violations, WAC found that 1 in 3 people in low waged jobs face unpaid wages. Now more than ever workers need protection from wage theft.
