This really isn't how this comparison should be made. I don't know why we would use the average price of a two-bedroom apartment in the most expensive market in Canada and weigh that against low-skilled single-income professionals. If we're talking CUPE support workers, presumably they'd have two incomes supporting a two-bedroom apartment, and we'd at least be looking at the lower-end of prices and/or probably things on the outskirts and suburbs. Regardless, housing and shelter costs are a separate problem altogether and one not limited to school support workers. On 11/2/2022 at 12:24 PM, Boges said: No. Teachers have their own Unions. Dofo Caves to the low skilled education workers, they Teacher's Unions will up the ante I'm sure. This, as I've said before, is the bigger issue. CUPE school support workers getting a noticeable raise isn't an outlandish request. That the Teacher's Union will use these increases as the low-water mark for their own negotiations is the problem, and that's the calculus I think that Dofo and his government are running. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
