"Official Restaurant" of the Olympics pays $6.35 per hour in Vancouver
This is disgusting. McDonald's is taking advantage of B.C.'s "training wage" for new workers and immigrants (note: wtf, BC? you let employers legally discriminate against immigrants?) and paying their workers $6.35 per hour instead of the regular minimum wage of $8 per hour. One of the richest corporations on the planet.
Just for comparison purposes:
When I left high school in 1990, I get a full time, minimum wage job at a bakery for $6.00 per hour. Two decades ago. By 1994, when I left that job, minimum wage had gone up, and I was making $6.50 per hour at minimum wage.
So, 16 years ago, my minimum wage job paid MORE than those fuckers at McDonald's are paying immigrants and "new workers" NOW.
