Action Alert: Please take 15 minutes to call your MPP TODAY.
The government is currently deciding on changes to employment standards in Ontario, including paid sick days. However, there has been push-back against these necessary measures from the Ontario Chamber of Commerce. This 24-hour period is crucial as cabinet ministers will be deciding on this tomorrow.
Please take 15 minutes this afternoon or tomorrow morning to call your MPP and tell them you support:
Adding a personal story that shows how precarious, low-paid work affects people in your life or patients in your practice will help your MPP to understand why it's urgent that the government legislate these changes now.
- 7 paid sick days for all full-time workers
- A $15 minimum wage
- Equal pay for equal work
