What's Wrong with This Picture: Fast Food Workers Demonstrate for Better Wages While Canadian Chains Bring in Foreign Workers

It's a no brainer, isn't it?  Pay people decently and they'll work.

I'd like the think that Stephen Harper and his friends are beginning to see the wisdom in this.  At least today there's talk of a "floor" in wages for foreign workers brought into this country to fill "empty" jobs.  " "Tories eye 'wage floor' and raising fees for foreign-worker program "



The ghastly truth is that fast food workers are paid very badly everywhere except maybe in Denmark where Mcdonald's worker can make $21 an hour. This week fast food workers in several countries demonstrated for a minimum wage of $15 an hour.

The truth is is that if you pay people they'll work...and they'll spend and the old economic multiplier effect swings into motion.
