I rarely go to McDonald's but I was recently at the Pandora location, one of the restaurants named in the article, and Jesus H. Christ, our order was prepared incorrectly not once, not twice but three times.
Clearly, very clearly there was a language barrier that resulted in the restaurant dumping orders of food after not understanding what their customers were requesting. Meanwhile as we sat there with our burgers other customers were walking up to the till complaining about their orders.
From the article is this statement by the Minister of Employment and Social Development:
On April 3, 2014 I became aware of very serious allegations that a McDonalds franchise owner in Victoria, British Columbia broke the rules of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. I immediately ordered my officials to begin an urgent investigation to determine the facts.
Within 24 hours of becoming aware of these allegations, inspectors from my department did an on-site inspection at the location in Victoria and I suspended all Labour Market Opinions and work permits in process for this franchise pending the outcome of the investigation. The Labour Market Opinions and work permits were suspended as I have reasonable grounds to believe that this employer provided Employment and Social Development Canada with false, misleading or inaccurate information.
If the investigation determines that this franchise owner broke the rules of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program, I will permanently revoke their existing Labour Market Opinions and prevent them from hiring temporary foreign workers.
