I don’t have an issue with this. Companies are free to post whatever ranges they want and most people already discuss compensation if that is their bias anyways.

The intent of this law is to eliminate wage discrimination as the Province feels that small business exists to exploit employees and screw customers.

This will finally put the wage disparity argument to rest and we can finally stop talking about it.

I agree. Of all the hair-brained pronouncements made by the NDP since 2017, this one is pretty much bald.

Yeah, total nothingburger.  You can just post the pay range is $17-$80 per hour and you meet the requirements.

StatsCan says per capita GDP is falling, and we are a decade in arrears if per-capita GDP were to grow by 1.5% per annum, just to return to pre pandemic levels of productivity/prosperity.

All part of the plan… from the Great Reset:

“With the pandemic, disaster-like macroeconomic outcomes – in particular exploding unemployment levels and plunging GDP growth – happened in March 2020 over the course of just three weeks. COVID-19 inflicted a crisis of both supply and demand that led to the deepest dive on record for the global economy for over 100 years. As the economist Kenneth Rogoff warned: “Everything depends on how long it lasts, but if this goes
on for a long time, it’s certainly going to be the mother of all
financial crises.” [​ 27]
The length and acuteness of the downturn, and its subsequent hit to growth and employment, depend on three things: 1) the duration and severity of the outbreak; 2) each country’s success at containing the pandemic and mitigating its effects; and 3) the cohesiveness of each society in dealing with the post-confinement measures and the various opening strategies.”
