Leave it to one misplaced tweet by a member of the federal cabinent to make the case that the Tories are out to get labour unions. Earlier this week Minister of Labour Jason Kenney tweeted, then quickly deleted, his thoughts on working with his apparently non-unionized staff.
It’s interesting how 140 characters can betray so much about the writer.
For instance, we now know that Kenney at the very least promotes the idea that unionized workers are somehow lazier or less willing to work late than others. I’m sure the many unionized staff of other MPs might take issue with that assertion. Hopefully, Kenney’s staff was being adequately compensated for their late night work session.
