Re: Tim Hortons: foreign temp workers "pioneer"

Thane_bitter, if you crunch the numbers (taxes, fees etc), it is in fact cheaper for a student/teen to sit on social assistance than to work at Tim Hortons... the problem truly lies with the capitalistic nature of our society... there is only so much money and that value proposition is way too high, so rent in Hamilton for one bedroom in a student house on the mountain is around 410$/mth with the largest portion going to hydro.

So if you look at most jobs they say you'll have "40" hours but you're usually lucky to get around 12-20 hours (ask most of mohawk college)... Therefore the statistics do speak the truth.
