No, I don’t support their strike. Yes, I would happily cross the picket line. I would also happily take one of their jobs. They are some of the most well compensated government agents, even if 60% of them are part time employees. Sure the “we can fire you for 90 days and rehire you” condition is strange, but I understand it’s a part of balancing their workforce when demand for alcohol ebbs and flows. Presumably the employees agreed to all of these terms, but now they want them changed? Go suck a lemon.

@dynamicduo exactly how I feel – maybe they wouldn’t have so many casual employees if the job’s only requirements weren’t to just stock shelves and work a cash register. I PLAN to cross the picket line so that I can tell them how I feel after I get booed.

Hey, that could be our protest motto: Boos for booze is fine with me!

They should be selling beer and booze at corner stores as in US and Alberta. It is simply ridiculous to have it under government control.

@brettvdb I would really appreciate it even what is it about. Please forgive my ignorance in this matter.
