Brief on the Minimum Wage and a “Tip Differential”


This brief, written by the Waitresses’ Action Committee with support from the Wages for Housework campaign, is addressed to the Ontario Ministry of Labour and the Ontario Ministry of Industry and Tourism. The brief argues against a tip differential after the minimum wage was increased and the wages of workers serving alcohol did not go up. The brief includes demands, endorsements from other organizations, testimonies, and a fact sheet.
