Ask Premier Kathleen Wynndfarm

How do you follow up on decimating Ontario's manufacturing sector by having the highest electricity rates in North America?insert alt text hereThat's simple... go after the low end services industries...

TORONTO – The premier of Ontario is accusing the children of Tim Hortons’ billionaire co-founders of bullying their employees by reducing their benefits in response to the province’s increased minimum wage.

While the changes announced in the letter are not a violation of Ontario’s Employment Standards Act, Wynne says she wants Joyce Jr. to reverse his decision.
Forget about Tims... what about every Mom & Pop business in Ontario?

Hmmm... let's get an opinion from someone who hasn't plunged the province into scary, unimaginable debt...
Dan Kelly, head of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, says the Wynne Liberals were repeatedly warned that increasing the minimum wage would hurt workers, but went ahead with the move anyway for purely political reasons.

Business owners had asked for a full impact assessment of the minimum-wage change to determine what the net effect would be, but the government refused to allow that to happen. All they cared about are the optics of this, to flex their credentials with union members in order to try and win the next election.”

old white guy says.............all liberal socialists are economic illiterates. one cannot mandate a wage increase without a corresponding increase in productivity and profit. $14.00 an hour is now the bottom, all costs will rise to reflect this, including taxes. The people at the bottom will be no better off after the raise than before.
