Double-doubles and demonstrations: Employees rally outside Tim Hortons

The Tim Hortons on Lakeshore by Judge could be busy on the outside later this afternoon.

RBI has denounced the actions of some franchisees, who have said they have been left with no choice because the parent company, which controls product pricing, has not committed to a price hike.

Tim Hortons has said that individual franchise owners are responsible for handling all employment matters. She said if Ron Joyce Jr., whose father co-founded the coffee shop chain, was opposed to the Liberal government's decision to raise the minimum wage, he should have picked a fight with her, not the workers. The changes were in response to the province increasing its minimum wage to $14 an hour.

Media opportunities on-site with Leadnow's Fair Economy Campaigner, Brittany Smith and Deena Ladd from Fight for $15 and Fairness are available at 700 University Ave, Toronto starting at 1 p.m.

The minimum wage policy is popular with the majority of Ontario residents and most businesses are implementing it without complaint, he said.

"That's what we believe to be the case", she said.

Flynn said he would still welcome further discussions with small business owners about the policy but said Wynne was right to criticize the franchisees for such actions.

It's being called a national day of action by more than 50 groups across Canada that spent their mornings rallying with signs outside Tim Hortons locations, including in Surrey, Vancouver and Maple Ridge.

The demonstrations come just a few weeks after an Ontario franchise owner was under fire for cutting back on employee benefits and paid breaks. "I know the Fair Wages Commission has made their report now with the provincial government so we have to make sure we pressure the provincial government so they pass a strong $15 minimum wage". They are calling on Tim Hortons' parent company Restaurant Brands International (RBI) to take whatever steps necessary to reverse the cuts and ensure the wages and working conditions of Tim Hortons employees are fully protected.
