Bill 115: IS EDUCATION AN ESSENTIAL SERVICE?

Press Release

- M E D I A   R E L E A S E -

By removing the right to strike from teachers with Bill 115, the government is treating them the same as police and firemen, in essence, declaring public education an essential service. Given that the vast majority of families have no choices in where or how their children are educated, this is a logical step. If education is not an essential service, one must ask why the government is providing it. 

Union strikes as a property rights issue.

One of our Facebook readers was confused about how union strikes as a property rights issue.  Here is how I see it.... 

All successful businesses [aka 'employers']  require, among other things, labour in order to produce the goods and/or services that generate business revenues. To acquire this labour, they create jobs and run employment competitions to find and hire the "best fit" job candidates at free market prices. These jobs are the property of the business owner as is the money from which wages are paid.

The OLP defends the Right to Work for ALL Ontario citizens equally ….

Every citizen should have the right to a safe and equitable workplace where they are free to pursue their own individual interests in alignment with their employers’ and without interference from third parties. This right does not exist in a unionized work place that is not governed by Right to Work legislation.

"Put me in charge . . .."

Has anyone else seen this ???   It was sent to me today by an old friend .  I call it "PUT ME IN CHARGE" and its message can be summarized by the final quote: 

      "The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a  living."

For me, this message  beautifully addresses the 'entitlement attitude' that seems so common today amongst the electorate and it does so in a very interesting and forthright manner - somewhat blunt, maybe, but still an appropriate message just the same.

The Property Rights View - from a "devil's advocate"

Rick.

Re-read my article again carefully. The rationale for collective bargaining as theft is clearly laid out. 

The options that you are suggesting for the employer are severe - to be forced to shut down his business or to uproot his family, business, etc to go to more 'work-friendly' jurisdictions are hardly realistic options for most business owners.
