Until now, Alberta farms were exempt from labour laws that applied to factories and city jobs. Laws about things like holidays, overtime pay and minimum wage.
Bill 6, a law to unionize Alberta family farms, repeals those exemptions.
In other words, Bill 6 bans family farms.
Because I don’t know a single farmer or rancher whose entire family doesn’t get involved, especially during harvest. Under Bill 6, farm kinds won't be allowed to help out.
"Holidays"? Do cows not need to be milked on Labour Day or New Years Day?
"Minimum wage"? Will farms need a punch clock? What if a bunch of moms cook dinner for a bunch of dads who are out harvesting? Is that cooking now subject to minimum wage?
Bill 6 is something only union bosses could come up with, under the guise of "safety."
Say, did you know that in the past year, 33 children being “taken care of” by the unionized bosses at Alberta Child Services have died and 11 have been seriously injured.
Almost one kid a week. But union bosses want to be in charge of farm safety now?
This isn’t about safety.
Notley's NDP doesn’t want to fix a problem on farms or ranches. No-one has detected those problems in more than a hundred years.
But to Rachel Notley and her union friends — farmers and ranchers, well, they are the problem. They didn't vote for her.
