ON Jan. 17, many Goodwill workers showed up for work only to find the doors locked and the company shuttered. 

Goodwill Industries of Toronto, Eastern, Central and Northern Ontario (TECNO) had suddenly closed 16 stores and 10 donation centres, citing an unsustainable fiscal crisis. The move left 430 workers across Ontario — including ones in Toronto, Barrie, Orillia and Brockville — out of a job.
