Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 18, 2017

Pharmacist are no longer truly self-employed; most work for a salary under an employer (usually a big chain, such as Loblaws, Walmart, or SDM). As such, they should be treated similar to under employed health professionals and be allotted things like mandatory/structured break times, and most importantly, overtime pay. We are no different from other jobs now - we are not like doctors (all are personal corporations and self-employed businesses). Overtime pay is a must, and employers (which are often not pharmacists) MUST be held accountable.
