If you’re not performing for your corporate overlords, the government is ready to step in and put you back in your place. Now fall in line, maggot!
Raitt told CTV’s Canada AM on Thursday that a negotiated settlement is the best solution, but said the federal government is ready to step in if that doesn’t happen. Raitt estimates a prolonged strike will cost the Canadian economy $540 million per week.
“When 5,000 employees going on strike starts affecting tens of thousands of employees at Ford plants or GM plants or at coal mines or grain farmers, then it’s a bigger impact than what’s just happening at the company,” Raitt said.
