A move by the Liberal government to freeze wages for CEOs at hospitals, universities and across the public sector is welcomed by Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak.
“We’ve been calling for a wage freeze for some time and that’s across the board for everybody, no special favourites, no special deals. We finally got Dalton McGuinty saying the words wage and freeze in the same sentence, I take that as a good thing,” says Hudak. “There’s a lot of families here in southwestern Ontario who’ve lost work, who have had cutbacks in their own pay. We in government need to do our share of the sacrifice as well.”
He says he wishes a wage freeze would’ve come sooner, but he’s glad the Liberals are listening.
