Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be letting you know more about something that happened in the past.
Yes, it's regarding what happened on June 1st, Injured Workers Day!
Why am I discussing this now? Well, a couple of days ago, it was Labour Day!
Labour Day, supports workers!
So, I thought it would be good to let you know more about what happened after injured workers and those who supported injured workers, met and protested Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), in front of their building, here in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
Not only did we hold signs and allow drivers to read them, some people also did speaking. Most of those who did, spoke about how WSIB is truly not supporting injured workers, the way they should be.
One speaker, whose name I do not know, spoke about how WSIB will be rewarded by the province of Ontario increasing the value of minimum wage. And, how injured workers will be affected. Thank you, sir... for explaining it to everyone.
I also spoke. Please know I didn't say a lot.
However, I commented about how WSIB does NOT help injured workers, always.
I commented about how WSIB does NOT always provide medical care that injured workers need.
I also commented about how WSIB does NOT always provide medicines prescribed to injured workers.
Even though I didn't speak much, I spoke truth. And, people there, were happy I said it.
When the meeting here in Windsor in front of WSIB ended, we met at Fogular Furlan. It's a centre where people can meet for purposes. Like how another group met there, that evening supporting firemen/women and other fire workers.
Who met with us?
Anyone/everyone who knew about the dinner being held to honour Rolly Marentette. As you may have read in the past, Rolly was a truly wonderful worker, who supported health care in various ways, including helping and being in support of injured workers.
Even though Rolly's funeral was only a couple days before this dinner meeting to honour him, he was still honoured... in remembrance.
And, so were injured workers.
You see, anyone who was not an injured worker, who attended the dinner meeting, had to pay the price for their dinner tickets.
However, anyone who was an injured worker, didn't have to pay for their dinner ticket. Not even me.
For this, I was truly thankful. And, felt like I was also being honoured, in addition to Rolly.
Even so, I was happy that speakers honoured Rolly.
Thinking about this, made me think of Philippians 2:4, "Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others."
Amen! We need to not look only at our own things, but we need to look at the things of others.
Just as whoever set up that dinner meeting did.
Thank you... whoever it was who set up the dinner meeting. I think I know, and thanked some of those people there, but since I truly am not sure, I don't want to quote who I think it was.
Please know that I pray that some day, WSIB will do what they need to do, to support injured workers in a better way, instead of making it worse and worse for injured workers.
Please join me in prayer.
Pray for injured workers.
Pray that WSIB will stop hurting injured worker, in some ways.
Pray that WSIB will help injured workers more than they have.
Pray that anyone/everyone who works for WSIB will truly become Christian and will gain salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Why Do I feel this way?
I don't believe that anyone who truly belongs to God, would want to work anywhere hurting others.
Thank you for praying.
May God bless you.
Until next time...
