Further strengthening our labour laws
While Team Moving Forward is proud of the hard-won gains included in Bill 148, we intend to push for additional labour law reforms going forward, including stronger health and safety guidelines in the Employment Standards Act, and card-check certification for every sector of the economy.
Improving the lives and working conditions of young workers
Young people in Ontario are currently struggling with crippling student debt, a lack of good jobs, high unemployment and underemployment, and increased living costs. When graduates are able to find work in their field – often in the form of internships – many of them are not paid for their work.
Team Moving Forward wants to change this unfortunate reality. If re-elected, we will push the Ontario government to pass Bill 64, which provides protections for interns and mandates the province to find ways of increasing work-integrated learning opportunities and paid employment for young people.
