CUPE Ontario President Fred Hahn discusses the inadequacy of Ontario’s new paid sick leave program with Jeff McArthur on Global News Radio 640 and points out the hypocrisy of Doug Ford taking time out to self-isolate while denying that right to frontline workers:
“Doug Ford has a privilege that hasn’t been afforded to hundreds of thousands of people whom we rely on – the folks who have been keeping things going in the communities.
The people who make sure our supply chain is working, who are in grocery stores stocking shelves and checking out our purchases so we can feed our families, people in processing plants, as well as people in the public sector, in long-term care facilities, in hospitals, in child care and in community agencies.”
