CPP114 – Just the tip

This week Marty, Gavin, and Andrew give you the tip, just the tip, when it comes to the impacts of the new Ontario Minimum wage after its first week in place. Business are cutting hours, changing tip out rules, and Tim Hortons is an evil bourgeois megalith as some franchises cut other benefits in the wake of the minimum wage hike.
