Doug Ford has once again denied Ontario workers permanent paid sick leave.
The Ford Conservatives voted against Bill 8 which would have provided all Ontario workers 10 days of permanent, employer paid and job protected sick leave per year, plus 14 additional days during public health outbreaks.
Over 25 times, the Conservative government has had the opportunity to protect public health and vote for adequate paid sick leave for Ontarians, but they’ve refused again and again.
We deserve better. After everything we’ve learned from the pandemic, we can’t allow our leaders to continue to put the public’s health at risk.
We’re fighting to make sure that nobody has to choose between working sick or not being able to pay the bills – and we need your help.
