Re: Tim Hortons: foreign temp workers "pioneer"

said by Markie:

This is abhorrent, exploitative and ought to be ended. We have a large pool of unskilled Canadians, and if they won't do the job for minimum wage then employers should be forced to be true capitalists rather than slave owners.

... you refer to capitalists yet you involve a dictatorship? Weird.

In any case, I disagree with your assessment of the situation as two of the local Tim Horton's has had 'help wanted' signs on their windows for weeks now, maybe a month.

If we worked with your dictatorship capitalism idea, the cost of coffee would go up considerably, since this labour pool you allege exists would want a minimum of $45,000 a year with benefits, paid sick days, more benefits and a representative union to make sure this goes up a few thousand dollars every year.

I'm sure most Canadians would prefer to pay less than $15 for a cup of coffee.

Are teenagers so well off they don't need jobs?

Yes, these days they live at home with their parents until they're 30 or married (but if married before 30, they usually divorce and come back at some point before they're 35).

What the fuck? Revoking labour arbitrage is hardly dictatorship.
