Pandemic Pay

 

Fix the $4 Wage Top-up!

The provincial government’s $4 wage top up is welcome, but it still leaves out a lot of essential workers. Tell the Ontario Government to expand the list, and make it retroactive to the beginning of the State of Emergency:

Our frontline workers have done extraordinary work since the beginning of this state of emergency. They have put their health and safety at risk for the well-being of our communities. It’s wrong that it took so long for this small wage top up to arrive, and far too many workers are excluded by the current plan.

We call on the Ontario Government to immediately:

Expand this additional pay to include the many frontline workers that have put the needs of the community first.

Make this additional pay retroactive to the day the State of Emergency was declared, so that people‘s sacrifice and hard work to keep us all safe is recognized.

Add your name to demand a wage top-up for all frontline workers!
