Join us in telling Premier Ford that worker's rights matter!

The Ontario Conservatives plan to drop statutory holidays from nine down to three for retail workers not only is insulting it's also damaging for people who work in a field where they get limited time off as it is and struggle to live off a bare-minimum wage. 
In the same week grocery workers have been told they're no longer worth "hero pay" while we're still in a pandemic by companies that profited millions in extra pandemic profits. And get to feel the threat of the Ontario government pulling six stat holidays away from them so that companies can take advantage of them even more. Often these workers don't have the luxury of taking holidays because they can't afford to take the time off work or are in a part time position where they aren't offered or you get stuck always working weekends because those are the only hours available.
Families who already struggle to afford and access childcare will struggle even more trying to find care open on holidays. This is another assault on the working class that only benefits the corporations that fight to keep workers under their rich thumbs and living like slaves!

Tell the Ontario government to leave statutory holidays for retail workers alone!  Haven't they shown through this pandemic that they're worth more?? When we will stop allowing the government to keep whittling away at the standards previous generations worked so hard to achieve??

Please sign this petition even if you aren't a retail worker...if we allow them to strip away the rights of one, they will come for the rest. Tell the government you're tired of the expectation we should all work ourselves to death for less!
