Affordable child care and public-sector strikes

Two interesting pieces out of the Parkland Institute this week. This first is an op-ed by the Parkland's executive director expanding upon the importance of affordable child care for wage equity. I will have more on the Parkland report it is based upon next week.

The second is a short analysis of the likely effect of Alberta's new essential services legislation that I wrote. The crux is that Alberta providing most public-sector workers with the right to strike is unlikely to dramatically alter public sector bargaining.
