The pandemic has revealed just who pays the costs and who benefits from the way our governments, society and economy work. Something that is not always easy to see—and that’s by design. This webinar series will bust the myths that blind us to the truth and provide you with the tools to realize an alternative vision, one where we are truly all in this together.

CUPE Nova Scotia and CUPE Newfoundland and Labrador are teaming up with the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives – NS for this three-part series of interactive discussions. We hope you can join us and take part in the discussions!

Who’s taking the cake, while we fight over the crumbs?

Why I love taxes and why you should too

Why is a government budget nothing like a household budget? Why is government debt not our biggest problem? Why are taxes good?

Join our interactive discussion about budgets, taxes, and the public services we all rely on!

Wednesday, May 12
6:30 to 8 p.m. (Atlantic)
7 to 8:30 p.m. (Newfoundland)

Why higher minimum wages are good for everyone 

If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it’s that a lot of the people we pay the least are the ones we need the most. Many of these workers are low-wage earners. Will increasing minimum wage lead to job cuts? Will it increase inflation?

Join our interactive discussion about increasing minimum wage!

Inequality is bad for your health

How often do we hear “you need to make better choices” when it comes to your job, your health or your wealth? Where you are born, grow up, live, work, and age, and the systems put in place to deal with illness, have more of an impact on your health than your genes and your behaviour.

Join our interactive discussion about equality and how it impacts our health!

Wednesday, June 9

7 to 8:30 p.m. (Newfoundland)
