I recently wrote this opinion piece for the Financial Post.
Is an $18,000 pension ‘gold-plated’?
Try as they might, those attacking public sector unions can’t seem to figure out why exactly they are so bad for Canada.
For whatever the reason — it doesn’t seem to matter much — many from Canada’s corporate classes insist public sector unions are a blight, and spend much time and energy mounting their hyperbolic attacks in these pages on an almost daily basis.
The threadbare nature of these arguments is best exemplified in opposition to the labour movement’s efforts to expand the Canada Pension Plan as the best way to help Canadians save more for their retirements.
