Chartwell Retirement Homes pay many of their staff minimum wage, and would like to keep them frozen there till 2020. In fact, most of their employees do not even earn a living wage. They provide care and compassion to residents; work that is considered important enough that the Ontario Labour Relations Board has consistently denied them the right to strike and puts them under the same legislation as hospital workers.
Meanwhile the Chair of the Chartwell Board, former Premier Mike Harris earns $237,000.00 annually – for a part-time job.
Chartwell Retirement can afford to pay fair. These caregivers need your support.
