Proposal For Lower Minimum Wage For Servers Denounced

An attack on workers..........That charge being levelled by the Common Front for Social Justice about the proposal to pay those workers who get tips a lower minimum wage.

The Common Front's Linda McCaustlin tells CHSJ News It will be women who will be adversely affected the most if they goes ahead.

She points out it's not the employer or the government that pays the tips so why the fuss and why financially penalise workers just because they receive tips.

Meantime, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business reports business optimism in the province is still sputtering.
