No Timmies Tuesday - Labour groups protest Tim Hortons’ response to Ontario minimum wage

Wednesday, January 10, 2018
Did you hear about the "No Timmies Tuesday" social media campaign? It urged people to boycott Tim Hortons on January 9 (yesterday) and instead visit independent coffee shops.

Labour organizations across Ontario are holding rallies today (January 10) to protest the actions some Tim Hortons franchises have taken in response to an increase in the province's minimum wage.

Since the rate rose to $14 an hour on January 1, several franchisees have announced they're reducing employee benefits and eliminating paid breaks.

They say doing so is a necessary measure to help offset the added costs of the minimum wage increase.
