Minimum wage increase causing great harm

Minimum wage increase causing great harm

"At a time when CEOs are making record multi-million-dollar salaries, it is not too much to ask that workers be able to afford a decent standard of living - and that begins with raising the minimum hourly wage", Unifor's national president Jerry Dias said. They should have waited a few weeks so they could show how the new minimum wage was affecting the bottom line of their business. More spending will result in more sales of goods and services that will in turn lead to increased business and more jobs.

Failure to take the required next steps will further escalate this matter within our membership, your customers and the public, and will leave us no other option than to recommend continued actions at Tim Hortons locations across Ontario.

Assuming Tim Horton was of the same character as his teammate Johnny Bower, I'm sure he'd be rolling in his grave right now.

"You are what a local business should be", patron Anastasia Nadine added. It is set to go up another $1 at the start of 2019.

Initially concentrated in Ontario and Atlantic Canada, the chain has expanded into Western Canada and Quebec, the US, the UK, Spain, Philippines and several Gulf states.

"We are here today to send a message to Tim Hortons as a corporation, as one of the richest corporations in the country". Non English speaking arrivals to Canada, often learn their first words of English in these stores, invariably it's the term "double double" (which appeared for the first time in the Canadian Oxford dictionary in 2004), a Canadian colloquialism for two creams, two sugars. I expect soon enough we'll be seeing some of the same petty bullying that cropped up among members of the franchisees' group in Ontario - forcing employees to buy their own uniforms, no more paid breaks, and a spiteful end to insignificant perks like a free cup of crappy coffee at the end of a shift - here in Alberta.

Trump threatens to cut USA aid to Palestine
Early Tuesday, the Israeli parliament voted to make it more hard for both sides to negotiate Jerusalem in any peace negotiations. On Monday, Trump criticized another country - Pakistan - for what he called "lies and deceit" and threatened to cut off aid.

"I think that that was unfair for me, working there so long, to be starting off at the minimum wage, when I should get a higher raise", she said.

CBC News learned the Cobourg franchise owners are Ron Joyce Jr. and Jeri-Lynn Horton-Joyce.

The threats and complaints about increases in the minimum wage taking place in many provinces are not just an Ontario phenomenon. "So increasing it will make people want to stay at a minimum-wage job". Is the situation brewing at the Tim Hortons cafes a sign of things to come?

A spokesperson with the Great White North Franchisee Association, which has defended the franchisees, told The Canadian Press that an average Tim Hortons franchise owner may be facing approximately $243,900 in additional costs in a single year.

The Great White North Franchisee Association, a group created past year to give voice to the concerns of some Tim Hortons franchisees, said in a statement Thursday evening that the Joyce family are "hard-working small business owners who are striving to keep their business viable and keep all of their employees employed". "It's always been our business plan since day one", she said. And with several provinces moving toward a $15 minimum wage at once, that means they are likely experiencing a shortage of qualified and ideologically certified propagandists to carry on the battle.
