On January 1, the minimum wage jumped in Ontario and Alberta.
The Bank of Canada says there will be 60,000 job losses as a result.
As we've reported, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne has called business owners who've objected to the minimum wage hike "bullies."
Here's today's news:
The Ontario Liberals are hiring 175 new business police to inspect and review how companies are coping.
Minimum wage? I guarantee you those 175 inspectors, and all their support staff, will be making high five figures, maybe six. So no more entry level jobs; no more entrepreneurs. But hundreds more tax-sucking jobs to bully the remaining entrepreneurs.
"Businesses should consider raising prices to offset wage hike: Ontario labour minister"
Kevin Flynn has been a professional politician for over 30 years. He's spent his life on the public teat.
And now he’s giving advice to companies: Just raise your prices! Because that’s what they do in government — just take money from people, in the form of fees and taxes.
But fine: Let's say every company just jacked up their prices.
If the price of everything goes up — then what’s the point of a minimum wage hike?
This won’t end well. You can’t move your Tim Hortons from Toronto to Buffalo, but you can move a factory from Canada to the U.S. to can get away from Notley, Wynne and Trudeau.
At least the rich can.
Not the minimum wage poor...
