Two small-business owners in Midland aren’t expecting the recent minimum-wage hike to have a sizable impact on their day-to-day operations, as many were already paying their staff more than the provincial minimum.

André Sanche, the owner of Ciboulette et Cie, a food shop and café in downtown Midland, believes the impact on his business will be minimal.

“We never paid anyone a server’s wage. We were paying well above the minimum,” said Sanche. “Those who could have been making $11.60 were all making $12, $13 or $14 an hour. Now they have all levelled out.”

On Jan. 1, the province’s minimum wage jumped 20 per cent, rising from $11.60 per hour to $14 per hour. The server’s wage also rose from $10.10 per hour to $12.20.
