Macleans: Doug Ford doesn’t care about temp workers

“Implementing Section 83(4) is the only right thing to do. And Premier Ford has the power to act now.

But it’s only the first step in better protecting temp agency workers: the government can make this kind of work truly temporary by ensuring that companies directly hire temporary agency workers after three months of employment; it could ensure that no more than 20 per cent of a company’s workforce is hired through temp agencies; and it could prevent temporary agencies from charging corporations fees when they want to hire the worker directly. These changes would go a long way to ensure the safety and wellbeing of workers across the province.”
