Coalition for Change: Caregivers and Temporary Foreign Workers

Bill 210 provides protections for caregivers today but must be extended to cover all workers

March 22, 2010 - Media Advisory

TORONTO - Bill 210 "Employment Protection for Foreign Nationals Act (Live-in Caregivers and Others)" comes into effect today. Under Bill 210, live-in caregivers will be provided with protections against exorbitant fees and unscrupulous recruiters. However, tens of thousands of other temporary foreign workers and permanent residents also need protection from recruitment and other fees charged to workers for employment in Ontario.

Need some help with a serious labour issue.

I need a little help with a serious issue that is directly affecting my workplace.

(By the way mods...I checked the rules to see if using actual names of people was against those rules and I did'nt find anything.It is'nt my intention to break any right now,so if I do it's unintentional,so feel free to edit anything that could get the site in trouble...Thanks in advance)

A little background....

I am precisely what my handle says I am.I am a certified welder who is currently laid off from my job.I've been laid off for almost 6 months and I know how tough it is out there for tradespeople.My intention is to get my Red Seal endorsement which will allow me to be a Journeyman in my field and I can work interprovincially.The Red Seal stuff is'nt the problem.

Driver says: The TTC's Problem Is Not Customer Service: It's Customers

This article, "Why the TTC should get liquored up" is just as moot as every other article I've been reading about the problems with the TTC. The problem lies not with the system, but with the public who use it and ABUSE IT! I should know, I ride the TTC everyday, as does my spouse (as a paying customer). However, I have a chance to see things from a slightly different angle as well. You see, I'm a TTC bus operator as well (hides under table to prevent getting hit by thrown rocks).
