    CONSULT FIRST ACT LATER IS RIGHT.I DON T KNOW WHY ANY PRIVATE OWNER WOULD WILLIINGLY TAKE ON THE ADMINISTRATION OF THIS UNLESS THEY EXPECTED SOMETHING IN RETURN...SOME OF THESE CENTRES HAVE 100 STAFF IN THE LARGER NAMED CENTRES. IT WOULD NOT BENEFIT RECRUITMENT BECAUSE THOSE ECE'S ENTITLED ALREADY MEET THE CRITERIA. THIS IS JUST A WAY FOR OWNERS TO SAY THEY ARE PAYING MORE....WHY DON'T THEY ACTUALLY DO THAT!IF GOV'T IS REALLY SERIOUS ABOUT IMPROVEMENTS TO THE SYSTEM THEY SHOULD AVOID THIS OFFER . WE ARE ALREADY AT THE MERCY OF THESE OWNERS AND THIS IS JUST ANOTHER WAY TO FILL THE PROFIT POCKETS IF YOU ASK ME!!!

    Concessions wrung out of employers in this province usually get taken back by hook or by crook. Look at the fact that government offloaded well-paying respite jobs to private sector agencies that have been skimming profits off the backs of underpaid workers ever since. This is a WAGE subsidy, it should be in the hands of the wage-earners, period.

    Yeah, this would be a huge mistake by government. Has anyone making these decisions ever worked as an ECE? I doubt it. They have no idea what the daycare owners are all about if you ask me, which is making money first and providing good childcare second. My wife has worked at 2 daycares in town, and we have had our child in daycare, and the daycare owners we have been involved with are more concerned with making money than they are with the childcare being provided by their centres. That may sound cold, or ignorant, but it is true. Sending staff home early so they dont have to pay them, keeping stuff below full time hours so that they dont have to provide a healthcare option for workers, and cutting costs in food provided for children are a few examples we have encountered concerning the greediness of childcare providers in this town. Give this money to the daycare owners, and one way or another the workers will not see it.
