Editorial: Discrimination Case Needs Sorting Out

This warrants coverage -- from Canada.

There’s a shocking legal matter that needs sorting out involving a group of workers with developmental disabilities in St. Catharines, Ont., who, according to allegations put to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, earned $1.25 an hour or less for 10 years.

The matter, Garrie v. Janus Joan, involved a St. Catharines company, Janus Joan Inc., that, starting in the late 1990s, employed several general labourers with developmental disabilities. It also had workers who didn’t have developmental disabilities.
