Peel Children's Aid Society workers have been forced to strike for more than two months. They're on the streets fighting for a cap on the number of cases individual workers have to take on. Workload caps are a standard provision in most children's aid society contracts, but the Peel Children's Aid Society is resisting such caps at all costs. Scabs are being paid $85/hour while Children's Aid Society workers strike for caseload caps virtually everyone else already has.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
