Say Yes to Your Right to Earn a Living Wage
“Right to work” legislation is gaining momentum as a way to increase business profits. On the surface it sounds promising for the working men and women of Alberta – a promise of more jobs in service sectors.
Don’t be fooled. “Right to work” legislation is really anti-union legislation in disguise. It is a law that only gives workers the right to work for less.
Jason Kenney’s commitment to increasing business profits is a flag that he will move to ban mandatory membership in public-and-private sector unions. This membership protects the wages of fire fighters, nurses, teachers and trades people. This would deal a stunning blow to organized labour in Alberta.
