Restaurants Survive. Inevitably Means Unemployment for Restaurant Workers.
Menu costs in restaurants in Canada are going up and will continue to since the cost of food is skyrocketing. According to Todd Barclay, CEO of Restaurants Canada,'' Consumers should know that it’s not driven by restaurants being greedy. It’s driven by restaurants trying to survive". Since September of 2020 and now, the cost of milk went up by 3.5 %, butter 6.3%, beef 13%, and edible fats and oils, a staple in many restaurants 21.5 %. When times are particularly hard folks, naturally, try to economize and eating out is one of the first things they can give up, which inevitably means unemployment for restaurant workers.
