Dozens of local contractors hit the streets of downtown Hamilton Tuesday to protest against Bill 119.
The legislation, which took affect at the beginning of the year, makes WSIB coverage mandatory for certain categories of workers in the construction industry, even if they have private insurance.
Some of the 50 or so protestors at the corner of King and Bay say the legislation is a cash grab and will not only kill thousands of jobs, it will add fuel to Ontario's underground economy.
Government officials say the WSIB offers a better service that the private insurance system.
