Did you know Ontario recently reviewed liquor servers' minimum wage as part of a large labour law review?


After study and consultation they recommended that "The liquor servers' minimum wage should be phased out" p. 166

There were two phases of consultation including public meetings held in 15 cities, input from a broad range of stakeholders and experts, academic input, and research projects.

They heard over 200 presentations and received over 300 written submissions.
Some key findings from the report:

"Women comprise almost three-quarters of liquor servers." p. 163

"20% of liquor servers earn less than the general minimum wage after tips." p. 163
"The lower rate... institutionalizes dependence on tips for servers, to make even the minimum wage. Particularly when the cohort of employees is made up largely of women, this raises significant policy concerns." p. 165
"Most importantly, the policy puts pressure on servers to provide not only good service to attract tips, but may put servers in a position where they may feel pressure to tolerate sexual harassment or other harassment from customers." p. 165
"The entire idea is increasingly out of keeping with the ideas of decency of many Canadians. It is just wrong in our view to pay a group of workers, especially when so many of them are women, a lesser minimum wage than everyone else" p. 165
