Executive bonuses could cover $2 hourly pay bump for workers

New analysis from David Macdonald has revealed that the $61 million in bonuses paid out by four Canadian grocery chains to 23 executives in 2019 alone would cover the $2 per hour pandemic wage top-up for 184,000 full-time employees for a month.

The $2 per hour top-up for grocery store workers, which began in March, ended this past week.
