More than 150,000 public sector workers are on strike right now, holding hostage the services Canadians rely on every day. The federal workers are demanding a 47% hike in compensation, the right to never return in-person to the office again and even mandatory taxpayer funding toward a “social justice fund.”
To nobody’s surprise, NDP leader Jagmeet Singh jumped at the chance to play the role of ‘working-class leader’. All the while wearing a $2000 jacket and a Rolex watch, and propping up the very government that these public-sector workers are protesting.
At a time when Canadians are struggling to get by, it’s clear the public sector must think we’re stupid to make these type of demands.
