Once again, the Canadian TaxEvaders Federation is spouting off about things they either know nothing about or don't understand. Overtime is a feature of the "law" - in every jurisdiction in this country. Collective agreements are a second layer of defense against unscrupulous employers who would work people excess hours without additional compensation.
The reason for overtime in this situation is that the employer was understaffed for the work that needed to be done. That's it - plain and simple. Places where the overtime is large has nothing to do with what the TaxEvaders Federation suggests.
But then why would anyone expect anything different from that organization which has NO members and represents NO one.
