4th Reading

"About that Raise........" For almost a million public servants in Ontario, that long-awaited wage increase may quickly be going up in smoke. The Harris government announced this week it may restrain wages for nurses, teachers, and other civil servants - roughly one in six Ontario workers. Labour leaders, reacting swiftly to this proverbial red flag, are predicting major strikes. To political observers with long memories, the idea is a political power keg. Steve Paikin's guest tonight on 4th Reading is Leah Casselman, she heads up OPSEU-the Ontario Public Service Employees Union. Also with us to debate, discuss and analyse: Ruth Grier, Richard Mahoney and John Matheson.
