Wynne starts hiring “job cops”: $70K per year to bully Ontario’s remaining entrepreneurs

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


A Canadian politician is finally keeping a promise. The bad news is that it's Kathleen Wynne. She just started hiring extra labour code police.

At the beginning of the year Ontario's minimum wage jumped from $11.60 per hour to $14 per hour. It was a devastating 21% hike, overnight.

To make sure Ontario's beleaguered entrepreneurs are following Wynne's growing list of onerous regulations, the Liberals promised to hire up to 175 new labour code inspectors – job cops, basically.

The Ontario government is hiring its first round of labour code enforcers. According to the online jobs listings for the Ontario public service, the first 13 of 175 are being hired for areas covering Mississauga, Scarborough, Sudbury and London.

These employment standards officers will be making between $1,339 per week up to $1,647 per week - nearly $70,000 per year all the way up to over $85,000 per year.

With 175 new hires, that means Wynne's new minimum wage police will cost the taxpayer $15 million per year.

Luckily Wynne has an endless pit of taxpayer money to cover her ballooning labour costs, a luxury business owners just don’t have.

People like Andrew never give a damn when public institutions like schools and Universities ignore the rules.

Andrew you do realize workers get paid right? If not for entrepreneurs there would be no jobs. And before you say it ,there would not be public service jobs as private sector is where tax revenue comes from.

Andrew Stephenson you really think the government cares about workers? LMAO! And you know damn well they will not check on unionized jobs , nor would they care about any abuses. Screw the state and their BS.

They will be called “General Standards Police”. The short form will be Gestapo.

If the “entrepreneurs” could be trusted not to “bully” their staff, this wouldn’t be necessary. I agree that it’s a sad commentary that it’s necessary that these vaulted entrepreneurs to need external enforcement to ensure they’re actually complying with the law.

These entrepreneurs would be nothing without their workers. Time for them to finally acknowledge that.

Let me guess that there will be a “Hit List”, starting with any company voicing resistance to the new Wage and Labour reforms. Hope these storm troopers start with Day Care operations and Restaurant chains, that should kick the hornets nest. When the prices go up then the supporters of this Living Wage BS will get a crash course on economics. Time make some popcorn and watch the gong show unfold.

I see Wynne is running true to form. She must be voted out before Ontario gets any worse.

Checking up on minimum wage earners pay cheque’s is the least part of Kathleen’s KGB. They will have additional, darker tasks to perform. Things will not bode well for Rebels in Ontario.

McGuinty stated the Wynn is way left of himself. He was dead on. She’s a true Marxist!

Any bets that they will completely ignore heavily unionized workplaces.

Paul McCullough damn rights. But on the bright side they will be liberal government workers so they will be easily bribed to look the other way.

Fred Albertan – the obvious answer is: – “Zum befehl Mein Fuhrer!”…

Ron Voss, I agree.

They’ll spin this as “Wynne creates 175 new jobs”. The 60,000 or so that lose their jobs will be blamed on evil corporations.

Will they wear brown shirts?

Should be Cloward Piven.

Some of the hallmarks of a Marxist leader is to bloat the government under the guise of providing additional support; regulate citizens with additional laws; increase tax revenues and create uncontrolled debt….Wynne fits this description!
