Canada vs. Tim Hortons

The Liberal scheme to pit businesses against workers is succeeding quite well:

Protesters rallied outside Tim Hortons locations across Ontario Wednesday to show support for employees after some franchisees made benefits and break cuts after a minimum wage increase -- but many gatherers stopped short of committing to a boycott.

The clueless opine:

[...] labour groups who gathered outside stores in cities including Toronto, Ottawa and Coburg, Ont. Wednesday describe the company as "wildly profitable" and argue Tim Hortons and its parent company can afford to pay employees at the new rate without taking away previous perks.

Strange that more people aren't opening coffee shops considering how it's so "wildly profitable."

Anyhow, Tim Hortons is suffering:

Organizers said they hope such rallies will send a message to Tim Hortons and its parent company, Restaurant Brands International. The parent company has denounced the actions of some franchisees, who have said they have been left with no choice because RBI, which controls product pricing, has not committed to a price hike.

Basically, it's either cut benefits or fire a few workers. Pick your poison.
