The premier of Ontario is accusing the children of Tim Hortons' billionaire co-founder of bullying their employees by reducing their benefits in response to the province's increased minimum wage. In a letter to workers at two Tim Hortons restaurants, Ron Joyce Jr. and Jeri Horton-Joyce said staff would no longer be entitled to paid breaks, and would have to pay a portion of their benefit costs to offset a jump in the hourly minimum wage. Premier Kathleen Wynne says she is shocked by the move. Wynne says if Joyce Jr. wants to challenge the Ontario government policy, he should come directly to her and not take it out on the workers.
