Yes, a living wage should be adopted, I agree but that should include all workers, don't you think?

So as a community leader why hasn't McMaster adopted a living wage policy for all its employees?

As part of a letter writing comapign I compassionately pleaded with the president of the university not to cut full time jobs that were to be contracted out to the temp companies, where workers are mostly paid low wages, no benefits, no job security. What about those families who were losing their steady income eh?

Anyways, where did I call for salary cuts?
