Wynne Hires 175 “Business Police” for Minimum Wage Crackdown

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I reported on Kathleen Wynne hiring 175 new business police to investigate companies coping with her decision to drastically increase Ontario's minimum wage.

Small businesses and retailers are cutting staff benefits to adjust to a sharp increase in wages, including franchises like Tim Horton's that are unable to raise menu prices and have little financial flexibility. 

Wynne was quick to capitalize on the struggle of Ontario businesses by calling owners who objected to her policies "bullies".

But it's Wynne who's the bully, she's using taxpayers money to hire 175 new business police to strongarm Ontario employers. These new bureaucrats will likely be making five-figure salaries, vote for pro-union Liberals in every provincial election, and I'm sure none of them will have any experience running a business or meeting payroll.

Drew Wakariuk,
The goal is to get paid the best salary for the work that you do.

Wrong. The goal is to retain as much money as you can. If you get paid $100,000 but pay $90,000 in taxes you might as well work for $15.00/ Hr.

Drew Wakariuk,

It’s a fact that the more money people make – the more they spend and that helps the economy.

Well then, James, if that’s the case why not pay them $150 an hour and really crank up the old economy to a fever pitch? You mock me for using this argument but then you turn around and support it. Nice work.

It’s not for you to decide for people who make minimum wage. They will happily pay more in tax for a better wage and will tell you so. The same goes for any job/salary. The goal is to get paid the best salary for the work that you do.

Do you turn down raises, because you will have to pay more taxes? When you negotiate a salary with a company that wants to hire you – do you low ball them. “No, sorry I cannot accept 80K a year because of the all the taxes I will have to pay…please pay me 40K”.

Your idea of logic is really scary.

I see communism is making a comeback. Keep hiring more secret observers you hag.

James Crockett maybe if the left stopped taxing so much they could live on that wage, and you do realize this increases the amount of tax many minimum wage earners will have to pay? So what good is it if the government takes it? And your comment about people having more money to spend is idiotic when you are a left wing twit who loves the government taking more and more of it. Tell that to the left wing governments.

Just to feel better, I keep picturing this traitor in an orange jumpsuit, and chained to Notley and Trudeau!

Looks like Butz has got himself a new troll name: James Crockett.
Tired of using Sean Penson and all those others you have tried? If there were truly that many trolls wouldn’t they be on here all the time yet we see a new one every so often as the stale ones are dropped.

Menzoid, one of your best yet.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

OK. Ezra is just mad that he has to stop paying his staff Canadian Tire money.

“living wage” Marxist BS!

So…she couldn’t find 175 people already within the bureaucracy? Typical Liberal mentality….

I think Ezra is just mad that he has to pay a living wage now to his Rebel staff.

Wynne couldn’t run a business selling condoms at a WHouse. Fast food restaurants need to automate asap. and traditional restaurants need to start using the Euro model with no tips to keep their customers. Pay 15 bucks an hour, eliminate tips and increase meal costs 10%, customers will probably pay about the same, employees will make their increase wages and pay taxes on the full amount and the restaurant will probably not make just as much as they used to.
