Come petition and leaflet with us!
A quick FYI – When Ontario’s minimum wage increased to $14 on January 1, 2018, Tim Hortons began to cut workers’ paid breaks, reduce access to basic drug and dental benefits, eliminate uniform and drink allowances, and even cut employees’ hours of work.
This is outrageous coming from a wildly profitable multinational corporation.
• In 2016, Tim Hortons generated US $3 billion in revenue for its parent company Restaurant Brands International (RBI).
• That same year RBI CEO Daniel Schwartz pocketed $6,640,150 in salary, stock options and other perks.
• An additional US $350 million in profits were given out to shareholders.
This is not right, and it’s downright greedy. It’s time to take action. Join us and fight for 15!
