Poor, poor McDonald’s Canada CEO. They might have to raise wages or something. They and many other companies have been bringing in temporary foreign workers in a program that was supposed to help when a company couldn’t fill a position. Last week, the story broke that a pizza restaurant in Saskatchewan was firing long-time employees and bringing in temporary foreign workers to replace them.
The Employment Minister Jason Kenney stopped the program for restaurants (for now at least) and McDonald’s Canada had a conference call. Someone recorded that call and gave it to the CBC. Possibly nsfw language.
