Bank of America fail


Why would Bank of America ask for customers’ Social Security Numbers when customers call for service, while at the same time do business with illegal immigrants who do NOT have SSN’s?

Bank Of America has a Double Standard for Immigrants

Public Service Staffing Tribunal issues decision regarding venues for exchange of information


Yesterday, Canada’s Public Service Staffing Tribunal issued a decision regarding meeting locations used for exchange of information during the complaint process.

The Tribunal noted, “The purpose of exchange of information in the PSEA and the PSST Regulations is to promote transparent employment practices (Visca v. Department of Justice [2006] PSST 0016). It is implicit therefore, that such meetings are to be held at a place of business and not at a residence.”

“PSEA” refers to the Public Service Employment Act.

“PSST Regulations” refers to the Public Service Staffing Tribunal Regulations.

For more information, please contact the Tribunal and refer to the decision made on April 12, 2010, for file 2010-0071.

How Rona lost (at least) $50 in guaranteed sales


Recently, I was preparing to visit some friends who are in the process of moving house.  Knowing that they will have a need for home improvement products, I decided that a gift card from a home improvement store would be an appropriate gift.  So I went to my nearest Rona Home & Garden store, and asked to buy a $50 gift card.  When I took out my credit card to make the payment, I was told by the cashier that Rona only accepts cash or debit when purchasing gift cards, and does not accept credit cards.  I asked her if she is sure, and she insisted that a Rona gift card must be paid for by either cash or debit.  So I bid her farewell, and proceeded to a Home Depot store.  There, I quickly bought a $50 Home Depot gift card with my credit card, and was on my way within minutes.

My friends were happy to receive the $50 Home Depot gift card.  They told me that they do need to buy quite a few things for their new house – at least a few hundred dollars worth, if not a thousand or two.  With my gift card, they intend to visit Home Depot first.

In this case, then, it is obvious that Rona’s loss is Home Depot’s gain.
