A Smith: Why are you attacking me now? You want people to resolve their own issues, yet when someone comes up with a idea to have displaced workers have a place where they can go and talk about their individual issues or should I say what they need in order to move forward, you lambast them.

Displaced workers may need to upgrade education or need retraining. They may want to go into business for themselves and need help to come up with a business plan or even access to funding. I have been working, as a volunteer, giving my own time, to try to organize temp workers, as many of these workers are denied access to some of the basics of employment standards. Sometimes, when one is going through an emotional period, it is good to hang with people going through the same experience, you know the saying, birds of a feather, flock together.

WRCU2: I will take up your challenge. How about a Sunday afternoon, to set up a time, to get together and meet fellow workers who are struggling. It would be appropriate to bring home the message about stat holidays for those who work in the temp industry and may lose three days pay, which puts those families already struggling behind the eight ball even further.

Would you like me to bring my banner?
