Welcome to Ontario.
Since the beginning of this year I’m supposed to boycott both Giant Tiger and Tim Horton’s. Giant Tiger for laying off a portion of their staff and Tim Horton’s for cutting perks and benefits.
I’m not one for calling for a boycott of any business at any time. It’s stupid actually, the dumbest thing you can do. So you’re going to boycott a company for cutting benefits to employees. Everyone stops going there. It closes down. Do you see where I’m going yet? Now no one has a job? Right?
My “I’m unemployed because you boycotted my workplace” interpretive dance failed.
I’m not mad at small businesses for cutting perks to staff. I can’t even be mad at the layoffs. This is what you wanted. Higher minimum wage comes at a price, what did you honestly think would happen? A small business can’t absorb tens of thousands of dollars in new costs.
They just can’t.
Don’t call for the boycott of a small business, call for the removal of our stupid, goddamned half wit of a Premier.
