Can you pay rent on question marks?

Ontario law leaves workers without protection when it comes to unstable hours and erratic schedules. Too many workers are on-call without pay, with no guarantee of hours or overtime. You can’t pay rent on question marks, nor can you buy groceries or arrange childcare.

Workers deserve decent hours that pay the bills, respect at work and predictable schedules. As the Ministry of Labour reviews employment laws, we have a unique opportunity to strengthen working conditions across the province.

Come out on Saturday, December 12, for a festive celebration in Toronto for retail and service sector workers. We’ll meet by Eaton Centre at the South-east corner of Dundas and Yonge at 11:30 am. There will be caroling, candy canes, holiday cards and much more! Bring out your friends and family!

Support North Bay workers who are organizing against severe economic hardships impacting workers, their families and communities. Show your solidarity online or join the Unity for Our Community Demonstration on December 12.
