宗敎團體領袖「良好工作」發聲

多名不同宗敎團體的領袖簽署網上聲明支持$15 and Fairness($15和公平)運動。

聲明部份內容:

「身為宗敎和精神領袖,我們有在我們社區追求公平、公義和同情的歷史。我們知道良好工作是壯大和繁榮社區的至關重要條件,以及憂慮現時的安省勞工法未能保護勞工免於貧窮 ……像加拿大這樣富裕的國家,沒有人應該生活在貧困中。良好工作應該是安省反貧窮的核心事項,連同其他措施,確保我們所有人活得有尊嚴。」

$15和公平運動主辦者有信心會有更多宗敎領團體袖簽名支持這個聲明,以及指望你在你自己的信仰網絡之間傳閱它。宗教團體領袖可以按這裡在網上加上他的名字,或簽署兩頁可打印版本,郵寄到Fight for $15 & Fairness Campaign在Spadina Ave的辦公室,或掃描電郵到info@15andfairness.org

主辦者的目的是在11月底舉行媒體活動,以使人們主意到很多宗教團體領袖簽署了聲明。他們期望有數以百計的宗教團體領袖簽名,需要你們支持,盡可能爭取到最多的簽名。請你們現在就分發這個聲明
