Public would sup­port a price in­crease

The Hamilton Spectator - - COMMENT -

RE: Min­i­mum wage de­bate

Once again the mil­lion­aires for­get the work­ers who help make them rich. In­stead the own­ers of the Tim Hor­ton fran­chises pun­ish their em­ploy­ees for mak­ing a liv­ing wage.

I read that the an­nual in­crease for a worker is about four per cent to the com­pany. In­stead of pun­ish­ing their em­ploy­ees, why not in­crease the price of their prod­ucts by this amount?

I can­not be­lieve their cus­tomers wouldn’t mind the small in­crease to the cost of their cof­fee and dough­nuts and thus sup­port the work­ers who pour their cof­fee. Barry Ken­ning­ton, Hamil­ton
