The Canadian Press reported yesterday:
About 98 per cent of eligible managers in the Ontario
Public Service received bonuses last year, despite assurances from
the cash-strapped government that it's serious about freezing pay in
the broader public sector.
That’s thousands of employees.
After you finish blowing your gasket and your face returns to a whiter shade of pale, think about this.
You only have to look to the left or right to find somebody who has been down sized in some way.
Pay freezes, pay cuts, longer hours, more work, that is if you’re lucky enough to have work at all.
If the Ontario government is going to keep jacking up our electricity rates, taxes or wasting our money on fiascos like eHealth and power plants; they’re going to have to be more accountable than that.
Ontario is broke. We need a new model, not just a band aid.
But you’ll have to get involved and vote to fix it.
Or better yet, run!
