TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:
WHEREAS the pandemic pay eligibility needs to be expanded as well as made retroactive to the beginning of the State of Emergency and,
WHEREAS Premier Ford stated repeatedly that the workers on the front lines have his full support but this is hard to believe given that so many do not qualify and,
WHEREAS the list of eligible workers and workplaces should be expanded and
WHEREAS all front line workers should be properly compensated.
WE, the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows:
- to call on the Ford government to expand the 4$ per hour pandemic pay to include all frontline workers that have put the needs of their community first and make the pay retroactive to the day the State of Emergency was declared, so that their sacrifice and hard work to keep us safe is recognized.
