Why is a strike (or the conditions, wages of workers, etc.) at Co-op my problem?

Co-op is not the largest employer in Saskatchewan, but a large enough employer in Saskatchewan that their wage level affects everyone else’s by helping set expectations for entry-level and manual workers.

The attack that Co-op Management made on those wages, as the Board decided it didn’t have the authority to interfere, is absolutely the problem of everyone who works for a wage in Saskatchewan: if the lowest wages are lowered, it also is an incentive for employers to drag down wages at any tier above the lowest.
