GST: $0.45
Total: $8.55

Minimum wage in Ontario for hourly workers (and what the baristas around me are probably earning): $8.00

    Crazy isn’t it!

    And then Starbucks blasts your ears full of noise making it tough to concentrate on getting the most out of your $8+/hr wireless connection.

    They really need to change back to the good ole days. And of course provide free wireless like Caribou Coffee!

    Good Post! Keep up the effort.
