Don’t shed too many tears for Mr. Weston
RE: Loblaw braces for wage hikes (July 27)
Boo-frigitty-hoo Galen Weston to you and your kind. Just check the revenue numbers in this article and everyone can see you’re not suffering at all. The estimated cost according to you ($190 million) is lunch money in your world so let’s give a little to the people that slug it out and make all this glorious money for you.
In high school in the ’60s I worked PT weekends for Loblaws, worked and treated like a galley slave, while making well under $1.50/hr.
I predict that should this wage increase be implemented, food costs will rise and staffing cuts will probably be affected to boost the bottom line.
I can understand how raising wages may affect a small business, but when these revenues manifest in the billions, one has to wonder how much money do people like this need to make them happy - really? Bob Panchyson, Burlington
