This attitude has to end.
The Ontario Government (Canada) has hired people to review claims by individuals that their workplace, or getting there, is a health risk because of the corona virus.
So far only 1 of 280 applications to refuse work has been approved. Meaning that one employee does not have to go back to work (for the moment).
It is a known fact all levels of government are facing severe financial problems.
By letting people avoid potentially dangerous work would make them eligible to continue receiving money from government coffers.
At times it is more money then the person would make going back to work!
I am quite certain that the directives of the inspectors (reviewers) is put everyone back to work. The ECONOMY demands it!
Those earning minimum wage or close to it, in Canada, get more income by staying home then going back to work.
It did not indicate the pay levels of the 280. My guess that many earn very little.
