May 4, 2012 - Working People Across Saskatchewan Puzzled By Government "Consultation" Paper
Working people across Saskatchewan are expressing growing concern today over the government’s “consultation” paper, released Tuesday. The sweeping document solicits answers to questions on 15 different pieces of legislation, and resurrects social policy issues that have been settled for decades. Just some of the troubling questions posed in the paper include whether or not it is appropriate to pay people with disabilities at the same rate as others, if there should be any restrictions on the number of hours that employers can ask people to work, and if government should limit people’s constitutional right to stage demonstrations and to protest.
