    Exploited Workers At Brampton Distribution Centre

    Canadian tire is a Canadian owned and operated company if I am correct.
    WHY DO THEY CHOOSE TO EXPLOIT THEIR OWN CITIZENS?
    Let me tell you why,
    Candian Tire Distribution Centre only provides work to employees registered to an agency. This agency is called Adecco. Adecco finds employees for canadian tire and hires them on for "contracts". These contracts last a limited time, but they lead you to believe that your contract will be renewed. Untill the end of November that is. Where they lay off all the agency employees.

    Nothings wrong with this you might say?

    Adecco employees are paid s--t, literally. They pay us 12 dollars an hour (13 after 5 weeks) to slave for their f---ing company. Mean while the people who are hired by canadian tire are getting paid 20 dollar plus an hour for doing one quarter of the work. I have been placing barbeques onto a conveyor belt sweating my a** off, when along comes a canadian tire employee sitting on his forklift. The most he has to lift all day is his hand, to honk the horn. And this man had the nerve to look at me, exhausted and dripping sweat, and laughed while shake his head. Up untill this point I was lead to believe by the warehouse manager that the hardest working agency employees would be selected by him to be hired onto candian tire. Then I started asking around, they havnt hired anyone onto canadian tire in 3 years. 3 F---ING YEARS. Let me tell you why this pisses me the f--- off

    (all these calculation are estimates, and in favor of canadian tire)

    We have a total of 800 employees (400 each 10 hour shift, 2 shifts per day)
    Out of 800 only 100 are employed by canadian tire.
    Lets say addeco makes 4 dollars off each employee they have working per hour, given adecco has offered candian tire slaves for $16 an hour compared to canadian tires employee rate of $18 an hour.
    4x700=$2800 each hour adecco profit
    2800x10=$28,000 each day addeco profit (10 hour days)
    28,000x4=$112,000 adecco weekly profit (4 day work week)
    112,000x4=$448,000 adecco monthly profit
    448,000x12=$5,376,000 adecco anual gross profit
    Thats half FIVE MILLION DOLLARS per year, for an agency who exploits workers offers them no benefits no job security no paid sick days no vacation pay no NOTHING. Not even a thank you for working hard today, NOTHING.

    Now lets say canadian tire pays THEIR 100 employees 20 dollars an hour, using the same math formula as above (each candian tire employee I know is making over 20 an hour)

    $2000 an hour
    $20,000 a day
    $80,000 a month
    $960,000 a year canadian tire employee expense

    Now lets say canadian tire is SAVING $2 dollar an hour by using 700 slaves through the agency

    2x700=$1,400 hourly savings
    1400x10=$14,000 daily savings
    14,000x4=$56,000 weekly savings
    56,000x4=$224,000 monthly savings
    224,000x12=$2,688,000 YEARLY SAVINGS

    So we can safely say canadian tire is saving enough money to pay their own employees for free.
    $960,000 = yearly canadian tire employee expense
    $2,688,000 = 2 dollars an hour saved by hiring 700 agency slaves

    Wait...They have even more money to play with, so they pay off their own employees FOR FREE and still save over a million and a half???? And why do you think our country is in recession????



    I am DISGUSTED, completly DISGUSTED by the actions of this canadian company. Exploiting the own citizens of their country in order to make profit. And them dumping them like trash at a curb when the end of November comes. If it wern't for all the imigrant workers hired by the agency who barely speak english and are affraid to defend their own rights as a canadian citizen I would be stageing a protest/riot right now as we speak. I would be on the news talking to you through your tv screen while you sit in the comfort of your own home explaining to you all these numbers and figures as evidence why why we burned down agency buildings and broke canadian tire windows, why we held Canadian tire corporate members hostage in their own offices untill they agreed to speak to us.

    IM AS MAD AS HELL AND IM NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE

    You people may never hear from me again, you may never know who I am. But I want each one of you to get mad, I want you to get as mad as hell and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. STOP FEELING SORRY ALREADY AND GET MAD.

    I dont know what to do about the war in iraq, i dont know what to do about the palestinian state. I couldnt tell you what to do about the poverty in third world countries i cant tell you what to do about the rising suicide rates of natives living on canadian settlements, or the oil spill, or the lies youv been told by your polititians.

    But what I do know is that first you have to get MAD, you have to get ANGRY and FURRIOUS and feel that RAGE that makes you want to FLIP CARS and SET BUILDINGS ON FIRE and BREAK WINDOWS and hold corporate members HOSTAGE IN THEIR OWN OFFICES.

    Then we can worry about the war in iraq and the palestinian state and poverty in third world countries and the rising suicide rate of natives living on canadian settlements and the oil spills and the lies youv been told by your polititians.

    Whoever you are, I pray that you never grace the halls of my company. Clearly you have zero control over your emotions. YOu're mad as hell? Be mad at yourself because you haven't developed the skills/abilities to get promoted, earn a higher wage etc. Don't be mad at a company for hiring you.

    Flipping cars, burning shit and taking hostages is a little thing the Police like to call, criminal acts. I'm sure the wage in jail is less then $12.00 / hr

    Your math seems slightly off.
    1) gross profit equates to sweet fuck all. $5 million gross. Minus business tax, insurance, employee costs for the recruiters and administrators, computers, paper, ink, phones, offices, advertising and on and on.
    2) your calculation of Canadian tire employees only accounts for hourly wage. Your earliest beef was benefits. Factor in benefits costs, plus what CTC has to pay addeco for their recruiting/hiring services and the number becomes more realistic.

    Did you ever ask yourself WHY CT uses a temporary recruiting agency? to cope with seasonal peaks and valleys. In December and January when there is fuck all being shipped/sold, they don't need a bunch of people standing around at $12.00/hr with nothing to do.

    Suck it up princess, or develop some skills that will land you long term, permanent work. Go join a Union, seems like you want the world for free handed to you. Union work might just give you that opportunity

    It's hard not to sympathize with the spontaneous out-pouring of righteous anger by the unfortunate workers who have to tolerate these terrible employers.

    But I guess it's easier if you are the terrible employer, LOL!

    The full extent of your wit, intellect and charm all shine clearly through in the wording, tone and pace of your fascinating post.

    I’m sure your meteoric ascent to the higher echelons of your beloved Crappy Tire is approaching its zenith!

    Yes, a very good 'organizational fit', methinks.

    LMAO!
