As you have heard on the news (and experienced at the store), inflation is soaring and the cost of living is rising through the roof. So what is WSIB doing for the injured workers who are feeling the pinch? Giving them a very tiny cost of living increase that is well-below the higher costs found in their grocery bills. In two recent Toronto Star articles advocates spoke out on how injured workers are losing out as inflation hits, while the discriminatory age 65 cut-off for seniors’ wage loss benefits face an additional blow.
Injured Workers Community Legal Clinic’s online Zoom/Telephone meeting next Wednesday, April 27th at 12:30pm will talk about how you can help push back against this injustice, and discuss a number of other important in-person and online events that are coming up in the next few months.
