Corporate Theft In Saskatchewan

In Saskatchewan, pulling a 'Bernie Madoff' or an 'Earl Jones' against working people brings nothing but a yawn from our provincial government. Ripping off young workers? ... no big deal ....

How Poverino's walked away without paying 137 young people owed wages
"More than 135 workers mostly students and other young people are still waiting for their wages 21/2 years after Poverino's Pasta Grill closed its doors in Regina. Some are owed thousands of dollars for the work they did when the restaurant was in business prior to 2007.

Meanwhile, the director of the now-defunct numbered company that owned the place is living and working in Calgary. His $62,000 debt to the former staff remains unpaid. The company's shareholders are also off the hook.

That's fundamentally unfair, says Saskatchewan Federation of Labour president Larry Hubich. "What we are witnessing in Saskatchewan is government-sanctioned corporate theft," he wrote in his blog on the SFL website. "When is somebody in the government going to do something about it?"

What's the address of this jerk in Calgary? Maybe when I return, I could pay him a little visit :P
