Del Duca: Ford Wrong on Sick Days

TORONTO – Steven Del Duca, Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party, made the following statement:

Doug Ford couldn’t be more wrong when it comes to sick days. One of his first acts was to slash the paid sick days women and men across this province rely on.

When an Ontarian is sick – they should stay home. That’s how we keep workplaces safe.

Doug Ford just doesn’t get it. His old fashioned views on the economy are out of date and out of touch. Turning down Ottawa’s offer to help cover the cost of 10 paid sick days shows he hasn’t learned any lessons from the pandemic.

Make no mistake, if there are no paid sick days vulnerable workers will show up to the job in order to make ends meet and it will imperil others. The best way to keep Ontario workplaces healthy is to ensure sick workers can remain at home – that is good for the employee and good for the employer.

It was Ford’s short-sightedness that has made the pandemic worse in Ontario than it should have been. Doug Ford is not on the side of workers and employers.
