so terminal workers make double what private sector equivalents make.

 

How do you figure? Have you checked wages at unionized private sector employers in town lately? That $26 an hour is likely very comparable to a hotel cook or cashier.

the vast majority of hospitality workers are not unionized. so comparing with the average private sector it’s still at least double.

btw a unionized food service worker for city of victoria earns about $13 / hour.

$26 barely provides a comfortable standard of living in Victoria. While there may be some fat to trim in the ferry system, I think you're looking in the wrong place.

So many people coming to salt spring from victoria yesterday they had to add an extra sailing last night.

Which is fine, until they all try to leave on Monday! :)

  • BC Ferries offers financial support to assist employees on their health and fitness journey through a dedicated reimbursement program, which has helped subsidize the cost of gym memberships, golf lessons and bicycles, as well as employee-organized initiatives such as the Grouse Grind challenge, multiple marathons and races, and the creation of an in-office meditation area

 

And don't forget free travel for you and your family. I think about that every time I miss a ferry by 4-5 cars. Always wonder how many free travelling ferry employees are on the boat ahead of me.
