(Sep. 25/13) Minimum wage is in the hot seat in Ontario, and CRFA is making sure government knows how wage increases affect restaurants. Ontario’s formal review of its approach to setting minimum wage coincides with labour group rallies across the province calling for a $14 minimum wage by next year. This labour group has specifically named CRFA as one of the most vocal opponents to its push for a $14 minimum wage, which is a 40 per cent increase from the current rate.
