Coming to America? SEIU Canada Calls for CEO Salary Caps

Unions have, for years, been critical of CEO salaries (in some cases, rightly so).  They’ve gotten the State to enact laws to enable unions’ pressure tactics to have a say on pay. What’s their end game?

Well, for clues on this, one only needs to look north to Canada where the SEIU is pushing to put a cap on CEO pay:

The nursing head of a provincial union is calling for a cap on hospital CEO salaries, following the publication of public sector salaries over $100,000 in the so-called “sunshine list.”

Carol McDowell, president of the Nursing Division of the Service Employees International Union SEIU, said provincial appeals for restraint have been ignored and CEO salaries need to be reined in.

“The time for patience is over,” McDowell said. “We need to cap hospital CEO pay now.”

A two-year pay freeze is in place across the province, meaning no executive salaries will increase until, at least, after next March, Davies said.

When unions push to limit pay, they are, also pushing to limit success. And, when the State moves to do the same, there is little incentive for people to aspire to better their lives or their society.

Welcome to SEIU’s totalitarian vision for the future.

      • Thanks, Suzanne, for the answer. So just how many union members do you think make that kind of money these days? I’m betting that not all that many do.

        Of course, if you add in the perks and the benefits, they might get close.

        • the unions never cease to amaze me. Someone who has been a union member with, oh say one of the auto companies for a while is probably making $60.00- $75.00 per hour by the time you add in the benefit package. Are they REALLY all so very incredibly stupid as to believe they are soooo special that they will all surely be chosen to be part of the “ruling class” when communism hits town and that they will be continuing along with current wage scales? Seriously. Get a grip. Of course, I am 65 and went to school before the systematic dumbing-down of America began so I studied “real” history. We were well versed on the plight of millions in the East Bloc who starved to death every winter (by accident or design) or froze because their coal ration for the entire winter was about 8 briquettes. Do these fools really think it will be any different for them if Richard Trumpka and co. get their way?

          • Ah-Hah! Another well-educated woman of my generation– from back when you really could get a decent education from the public school system. I will be 60 this year, Suzanne. And, yes, the ones who work in the unions, the true believers that is, really do believe it’s all about them. I know a woman of our age whose son in law works for the Japanese owned company, Bridgestone. Their union went out on strike because they were being asked to contribute 10% toward their very generous healthcare plan. When I asked her why on earth they would be so ticked off at that amount, she said that all of them believed that they needed to get as much from the company as it would allow as they figured that the Japanese would move the plant overseas at some point anyway.

            Talk about a really stupid talking point– I asked her if she didn’t think that was just a self-fulfilling prophecy because the union was just driving the management to do that exact thing with their demands. She just stared at me…..

          • Right, Suzanne. The teaching of history has all but disappeared from America. One need only peruse the educational offerings at our institutions of higher learning. One recent acquaintance of the younger generation was enrolled in, and getting government subsidization for a course in “The sociology of food.”
            It would be screamingly funny if it weren’t so tragic.

  1. These people disgust me. They won’t even be satisfied when all hospital employees make the same wage. They will want to CEO to freeze and starve and sweep the floors as well. Sounds like the decline and fall of North Ameria is going strong.
