Letter to the editor by OCBCC's Laurel Rothman: 

"We agree with Minister Indira Naidoo-Harris that the proposed changes to Ontario’s labour laws increasing the minimum wage to $15 by 2019, introducing paid sick days and increasing vacation pay for experienced workers ' good for child-care workers, good for children and good for families.' However, there’s an important caveat: Public funding must increase to ensure that the burden of increased operating costs in child-care programs is not carried solely by parents."
