Our economy is hot, REALLY hot due to the oil sands in Fort McMurray and the fact that all the oil companies are based in our city. The city I'm in is a boom town and people are migrating here like crazy (population in 2002 was 850 000, now it's 1 001 000) The police service even got immigration canada to relax standards so they can recruit cops from the UK. Recently, our centre was given a $3/hr COLA increase for package handlers, from $9.80 to $12.80. And the twilight is still unable to retain employees, rather than the hard work, they'd rather go down the street to Nortel, do a fraction of the work, and make $16/hr. So now, rather than have employees quit, twilight is giving all employees the option to take Tuesdays and Thursdays off. 60% of twilight won't be showing up tonight, which backs everything up to the midnight sort that I'm on. Now our centre is going to use temps. In fact, our centre is so choked, our PT supervisor (whose working 12 hour days, 5 days a week) said to us yesterday "don't laugh, but who wants to be a supervisor?" Is anyone's centre as ridiculously short staffed as ours?
