Minimum wage – maximum job loss

July 23, 2017

When I arrived at my local Cineplex this afternoon, there was a sign saying the counter with sales staff would only take cash. If you wanted to buy with debit, credit or a gift card you had to go to one of the machines.

Staff at the theatre told us we were lucky. The original plan was to have no staffed cash registers. You either had to buy on-line or at the machine. And that’s the plan for Cineplex in future.

So now with the minimum wage hike, all those youngsters who used to make a few bucks on weekend working for Cineplex are out of luck. It’s cheaper to send customers to the machines.

What a shame.
