Why this petition matters

Started by Aaron Hiscock

Mr. Jason Kenney, we reject the idea that "Essential" workers are not "Critical" workers. Many Health Care Aides, Liquore store, and hardware attendants are in need of this money to help support their families. 

Health Care Aides having been working in a system that prevents most workers from being able to secure full-time hours. As a result, they need to find work at multiple Long term care homes and other facilities. Many Health Care Aides were excluded from the list because they were receiving a 2 dollar top-up. However, as explained above, this benefit was only making up for the loss in hours due to this government's one employer policies. This week Mr. Kenney told them they would not be getting the critical Care Benefit. We just have one question. Why?

Liquor and Hardware stores have been open serving the community during these hard times. As low-income earners, this benefit is truly needed.

We are asking you to show your support for all Health Care Aides, liquor store, and hardware attendants working on the front lines. Let's make this wrong a right and get them the support they need for their families.
