One only has to look at recent laws passed by the Federal Govt to blame for this.

True, look it up yourself and you'll learn that these foreigners can legally be paid 15% less than the prevailing market wage courtesy of our federal government. And i don't say that to start an ideological fight, at this juncture as nefcanuck said the corps are running the show now and it is doubtful even the socialists would rescind this unless there was blood spilled in the streets because of it.

No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake.......

You mean to present as proof that Tim Hortons can now pay foreign workers less than minimum wage an article that specifically says the opposite?

Under the new rules, foreign temporary workers will still covered by provincial employment standards, meaning they must be paid the minimum wage.

With all due respect, you first said "pay less then minimum wage now" and now you are saying "paid 15% less than the prevailing market wage...".

A new wage structure will also be introduced to provide employers with greater flexibility. Wages that are up to 15% below the average wage for an occupation in a specific region will be accepted; however, employers must clearly demonstrate that the wage is consistent with that of Canadian workers based on Statistics Canada data.

Sounds like a bit of double speak to me, this was hatched in the spring and we'll see how it gets interpreted going forward.
