Love the way we work

Posted on Mon, Dec 5, 2011 at 11:58 AM

I work in the retail sector and have discovered that I have to work more than 48 hrs per week before I am entitled to be paid overtime at time and a half, while the rest of Canada ranges between 40 and 44. I get paid $13.00 per hr, so I work as many hours as I can, only to discover this corporate perk supported by the dept of labor and our government. Nova Scotia is one of the most expensive provinces in Canada to live, and I depend on every dollar I make. So I ask you this; How many blows to the little guy are you going to deal before we get fed up and leave this province, where I grew up, as so many others have before me.

I understand the need to entice big businesses to set up shop in Nova Scotia, as they help drive our economy, but do you have to do it at the expense of your blue collar worker? As it is us who are the driving force of our economy. —Hate The Way We're Paid
