Today, I'll be discussing something, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).
It's not something regarding me, personally. Well, sort of, maybe.
It's regarding an article by rankandfile.ca that is entitled, Workers Comp is a Right! Here's a link, for you to click on, to read the article: http://rankandfile.ca/2017/09/11/workers-comp-is-a-right/.
When I began reading that article, I got the feeling it was in support of Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB). However, as I read more and more, I realized that to me, it truly wasn't.
Because it told the truth regarding hurting injured workers!
If you clicked on the link and read the article you'll know that it stated this information (I copied/pasted):
Wow! I'm sorry that the article created that coloured background because I copied. Just so you know, the original article didn't have that colour. But, I couldn't remove the colour.
Isn't it amazing how the information stated let us know that WSIB has cut total benefits to injured workers by nearly $1.16 billion, a 33% reduction over the six year period.
To me, it's also amazing that it stated that the WSIB's austerity agenda means thousands of people every year are forced into poverty. And, that in 2015 it was found out that 46% of injured workers with a permanent disability from their work injury, were at or near the poverty line, with 9% living in deep poverty.
Also, it stated that a disproportionately high rate injured workers also suffer from an array of mental health struggles, following their injuries.
I know it's true.
After all, I've met and known many injured workers. Plus, I've heard a lot about injured workers. Because after all, I am also an injured worker.
As you can probably understand, I feel hurt that injured workers are being hurt. Hurt, in so many ways.
Not just by the injury they've received. But, also by what WSIB does to injured workers.
To me, what WSIB does is totally against what God would have them do.
Thinking about that, made me think of John 13:34, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."
Amen! Just as Jesus told us, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."
WSIB does not do what Jesus expects people to do. So, even those who work for WSIB aren't doing what God would expect them to do.
Why do I think this?
Well, WSIB and the workers who work for that organization don't truly help injured workers. They do not give love to anyone, like Jesus loved us. And, just as Jesus told us that we need to give love to others.
True. They do not love one another. If they did, they wouldn't be hurting injured workers.
Please, accept what I am referring to. And, please... join me in prayer
Pray that workers will not become injured as they do work.
Pray that injured workers will be treated better and not any worse than they have been treated by WSIB and those who work for WSIB.
Pray that God will change the hearts and minds of everyone/anyone who works for WSIB. For, if this happens, then WSIB and it's workers will stop hurting people, and will instead, give love to injured workers.
Thank you, for joining me in prayer.
May God bless you.
Until next time...
