- Embittered Employee

What the Gov't really NEEDS to do is focus on how the labour law is enforced and re-vamp the labour laws altogether! Employers expect you to not take a lunch break or even a scheduled break. You can't make overtime if you're already making more than $15/hour. If minimum wage is raised than employers expect that they don't have to raise you because the minimum wage went up... even if you're due for more than one raise! Full time employees not even so much as offered health bennefits. Working 28 days in a row at more and 50 hours a week.... I'm just going on my own experiences in the workforce that have embittered me over the years. On top of this I have found that in the interview/hiring process, prospective employees are LIED to as when they start the job, they find out that they have been FOOLED!

Wait a minute... isn't this the same lot who scream bloody murder at the very notion of a minimum wage or the right to unionize? Aren't they the ones who applaud Harper's proposed corporate tax cuts and contributions to the CPP? And where's WalMart in all this? I might be cynical, but somehow I don’t think that the public welfare is their primary concern.

In bad times they dont want to pay taxes, in good times they dont want to pay taxes. They're like a skipping CD. Yet the very thought of paying their workers time and one half on overtime gives them a bad case of the vapours.Land pirates!

Use the same arguement and do away with income tax.People would have more money to spend to buy goods and services,hence keeping business going and people employed.Gov would gain through sales tax.Business owners would give more money to their employees.HA! Now that's a good one.

Many of the same businesses that the NL Employer's council are thriving due to government spending. If they don't want to contribute their fair share, I suggest they get off the taxpayer funded teat.
