Minimum wage has gone up .... now what?!
January 3, 2018 9:08am CST
Many are happy about this. My friend doesnt see the big picture yet her work is already suffering. Minimum wage jumped almost $2 starting January 1st. Iam cringing as the cost of everything has gone up. The government will take more so that raise will give me maybe $100 more a month. Yet, the cost of food,hydro, and heat have gone up the same day. So realistically it goes to that. Iam now looking for another job as the cost of food is more than i can afford and any governmemt assistance discriminates against single people unless you have kids you tend to be nothing. Now imagine someone who can only.work 1 job or who is retired etc. My friend has already had her hours cut.

You might be interested in what someone posted on the Campaign for Adequate Welfare and Disability page on fb. The Tim Horton's in Coburg is (among other things) no longer paying their workers for their breaks... I'm not sure, but isn't that against some labor law?
