Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

In addition to requiring eating periods for physical/mental health of the pharmacist to ultimately provide better patient care, I think the wages are getting way too low for the service pharmacists provide, especially now that the scope of practice is further expanding. I would suggest a minimum of $40-45. It can prevent the undermining of the pharmacy profession and can be an incentive for pharmacists to continue working at their best for their patients. With regards to pharmacists taking breaks, patients will still be able to have access to a pharmacist due to the number of pharmacies available, and waiting an extra 15-30 minutes is still not putting them at risk because the time spent in a doctor's office, emergency, etc. is usually longer.
