Your Urgent Support Needed
The current baseline for pre-crisis remuneration under the federal wage subsidy is the average weekly remuneration paid between January 1 and March 15. Given the seasonality of the retail RV market, using commission workers' salaries during the winter months as a basis of comparison puts them at a massive disadvantage.
While we are pleased that the government listened to our concerns and significantly expanded the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS) to businesses of all sizes, this critical issue needs to be addressed immediately to ensure commission workers in the RV and automotive industries across Canada get fair access to the federal wage subsidy program.
