    To work replacement, and Chartwell Reit, these residents are some of the more affluent in our province and the people charged with caring for them are barely being paid over the minimum wage. Try that, work replacement! Clean up after someone who can't look after themselves, and do it all with a smile on your face and the best of bedside manners while not making enough to pay your own bills. $12/hr isn't too much for these people to be paid, but apparently the real estate income trust that owns Elizabeth Towers doesn't like the effect this will have on their profits. Personally, I think I'd rather live my 'golden years' in the Hoyles-Escasoni, where I can rest assured that the workers are making a living wage.

    'We're digging our heels in for the longterm.'

    David Hann, you're starting to sound like that blowhard windbag Ed McCurdy of the FFAW.

    Did you bring your pillows and sleeping bags ? Do you want management to bring you coffee and donuts ? That would be priceless ! I think the coffee and donut precedent has been set - haha !!!

    I hope it snows soon and the winds pick up to 110kph - haha ! We'll see then won't we ?

    I know two residents of Elizabeth Towers and they are not wealthy at all. They just scrape by. Seriously.

    But if those workers are replaced, then they are unemployed. How does that work to get 'people off the system' Work placement ? The numbers stay the same.

    Hey, I know lots of people that will take these jobs. Where do they apply? Working these hours will grant them more than they receive from welfare, and is that not what everyone wants, people off the system? Let people that want to work take these positions today.
