We are not slaves! sign now

Currently here in BC our labor laws are designed to allow companies to make employees due mass overtime without the employees consent and only give someone 8 hrs .free from work in a day and this does not include travel time to and from work . Section 39 of the employment standards act says that we can not be made to work exsesive hours that may be detrimental to a persons health . This means a normal healthy person can be made to work pretty much any hours the employer wants . This is equal to slavory . We are human beings living in a free and democratic society and should not be treated like this . From a legal stand point companies say well your availability says full time which may be true however full time refers to 40 hrs a week not 60+ hrs. and no days off . I ask that everyone stand united for change to BC labor laws and let our political figures know where we stand . We need to further define exsesive hours as no more then 50 hrs in a week in all industries as well as making a clause in employment laws that no one can be made to do overtime by the employer unless the employee agrees verbal or in writing.
