STOP the LAYOFFS – Send Whitby a Message
As you may be aware, the Town of Whitby announced on March 13th that it would be laying off 210 part-time workers as part of its response to the spread of COVID-19. Laying off workers in the middle of a public health emergency is not the response that the people of Whitby need right now. Now, more than ever, we need our leaders to focus on communities, not cuts, as we all look for strength in the face of this global pandemic. Our communities can only remain resistant to the spread of the pandemic when people have the ability to pay their rent or mortgage, put food on the table for their families and buy the necessary supplies for exercising best practices for limit the spread of COVID-19. These workers need our assistance!
