Personal Support Workers Say Ford’s Pandemic Pay Boost Is Unfair and Will Create Shortages at Retirement Homes

Abstract:

Since October 2020, thousands of personal support workers and direct support workers have been entitled to a temporary hourly raise in recognition of the important work they do and the risks they have faced during COVID-19. However, other PSWs working in settings like long-term-care homes and retirement homes didn’t qualify for the raise — and now, with the Ontario premier’s promise to make the raise permanent, they’re asking to be included.
