Drinking the Management Kool-Aid: An Update with Bonus Snark

In case you guys were wondering, the fix was in, as I thought. Applying for that position would have been completely useless.

And more food for thought: with Ontario hospitals facing a 0% funding increase next year, low-level managers ought to be shaking in their boots. They’ll be first to get the axe.

Of course, calls for freezing the wages of nurses and other greedy health care professionals and hospital workers have already started. First up is Robert Cushman, chief of the Champlain LHIN in Eastern Ontario:

“I think it’s certainly worth entertaining,” said Dr. Robert Cushman, chief executive of the Champlain Local Health Integration Network, which has authority over how provincial health dollars are spent in the region. “There should be freezes across the domain — union, non-union.”

Cushman’s own salary jumped from $232,690.84 in 2006 to $259,922.21 in 2008, an increase of $27,231.37 or 8.9% over two years.

    This is certainly the norm across the province. In all sectors, deputy ministers are warning front line workers of doom and gloom, with excellent bonuses, of course, for managers to keep managing and dressing up the party line.
