Frank: Yes, you are right, the Bill 139 is geared toward temp workers but there are other workers who are deemed as "contract", self employed but are actually employees. There are many precarious workers out there.

Do I think they, the councillors should get severance pay, no I do not. They are "elected".

I wonder what Mr Clark's opinion would be? A worker in our community had a same temp asssignment for over a year, the worker had a family emergency and called in. The worker was terminated, no notice, no severance, the worker had to fight for EI and was denied, thus pushing the worker onto social services. Should not of this worker had been entitled not only to severance but EI a well, since it was the employer, the temp company that was allowed to use fear and intimidation and to deny the worker to any reasonable sense of fair play and justice.
