Ontarians paying for Ford’s $6-billion wage theft: NDP

Published on March 15, 2024

QUEEN’S PARK — Official Opposition NDP Leader Marit Stiles issued a response to reports the Ford Conservatives will have to pay $6 billion to public sector workers because of its unconstitutional wage-restraint legislation: 

“We are already living the impacts of Doug Ford shortchanging workers with his wage-withholding Bill 124, with staff driven from our hospitals and schools.  

Now, instead of investing billions to fix the things Ontarians are struggling with—housing, cost of living, emergency room closures—we’re all on the hook for Ford’s misguided attack on workers.”
