A better idea would be to issue a debit card to Ontario Tories that could only be used to buy a brain, a heart and the nerve to pick on someone other than the poorest and most vulnerable in our society.
The practice of restaurant/bar owners and managers skimming workers tips has become a common practice in Ontario. It’s bad enough that wait staff earn only $8.90 per hour instead of the normal appallingly low minimum wage of $10.25 per hour. Now restaurant owners and managers expect workers to defacto pay for the privilege of working in their establishments.
Labour Minister Linda Jeffrey was initially cool to the idea, but it looks like Premier Dalton McGuinty has given her marching orders to support the bill. I guess kicking the poor with a measly 1% increase in Ontario Works and Ontario Disability Support Programme (ODSP) payments was enough during this budget round.
So here at Class Rage Towers we’ve decided to run a contest!
Our question is: What would you call a restaurant/bar owner or manager who demanded a cut of a servers tips?
