Double standard

Ask yourself: Why is it pay raises are always in a percentage but wage roll backs or pay cuts are always in dollar values?
The FFAW says the contentious issue of salaries is expected to come under the gun as talks resume to try to get a deal for FPI plant workers. Talks broke down this summer when the company suggested a $2.66 an hour across the board wage roll back. Talks have been held since then but have dealt mainly with contract language issues. The negotiations affect more than two thousand plant workers at seven FPI operations throughout the province. The talks are taking place with the assistance of a conciliation officer and will continue on Tuesday.

Rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer even in retirement.
