Very much in terms of what?........actual dollars?........percentage-wise, its 30-40%. I can't imagine they could have a regular schedule, so I for one tip my hat to them.

The cost of living in Nova Scotia is quite a bit less than in Ontario. Up here that $10 an hour they are getting is like $8 an hour down there. So if they're getting $12 down there, they should be getting around $15 up here. Plus the Metro Center would take less work to maintain than Scotiabank Place.

I can't believe people who work at an arena have a union.

I work as a nursing aide, and am currently with my second company in this position, and we don't have a union.

BTW, it is not a well paying job.
