“Shifting work hours pushing fast-food workers into precarious employment” by Aleksandra Sagan, Canadian Press

Canadian Press quotes Toronto lawyer, Marc Rodrigue, in an article about fast-food establishments are cutting work scheduled shifts.

Cutting scheduled shifts is legal and allows businesses to make staffing changes according to business needs, said Marc Rodrigue, a senior associate at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP.

“Practically speaking, if a fast-food establishment has no customers coming in, it’s not making money, frankly,” he said. “Maybe you don’t need to have 10 people on. Maybe five people is good enough.”
