Letter: Coded laundry

Editor: A strong community means that people earn a living wage and can afford to live and participate in the community.

Editor:

Our MLA Ms Rosin believes that “every hospital across the province should have private laundry services” and that it is the “epitome” of wasteful taxpayer spending to have the government in the laundry business.

This is all in code of course.

Cracking the code one realizes that what she is really saying is that the laundry workers will be paid less for doing the same job and that savings will go into the pockets of a private entrepreneur, instead of into the pockets of all Albertans.

In another article in last week's Outlook, Ms. Rosin is quoted as saying that she believes in building “strong community”. Well, a strong community means that people earn a living wage and can afford to live and participate in the community.

I know that the big boys are really behind Ms. Rosin, and that she really has very little say in what happens provincially. But, what she can do is speak for those in her constituency who don’t have a voice and who are just barely making ends meet, working two or three jobs because the pay is so low.
