It’s the same story at the Columbo’s Chinese Restaurant and Restaurant Depot on Highway 403.
But for the owner, it’s a different story.
The owners are trying to survive on a $1,000-a-month salary and a $20,000 annual rent.
The store is the only Chinese restaurant in the country that pays its workers the minimum wage and provides health and safety training.
“I think it’s about time the minimum wages came up to $15 an hour,” said Columbo owner Paul Guo.
It’s been a tough year for Guo, whose business was one of the top 10 in the province in 2013, earning $1.1 million.
The province is set to introduce a minimum wage of $15 per hour this summer.
But Guo says his restaurant is also losing money.
He’s had to reduce the hours he works because of his family’s medical expenses.
He also has to cut staff, including the owners, from its staff.
Guo says the lack of a minimum income has forced him to close the restaurant, which was the only one that paid full-time workers the federal minimum wage.
Columbo owner and restaurant operator Paul Guomoa says he was able to survive without a minimum salary in 2013.
But he says his store has been hit hard by the federal increase to the federal wage.
(CBC News)Guo is also looking for a way to keep the business open.
The owners of the store are planning to move, but he has a plan to keep his business running.
Guo is looking for an alternative source of income, and he says he has found one.
The owner says he wants to bring back a popular restaurant that has been around for a long time.
In the past, Columbo had a menu with more than 50 dishes and was a popular spot for local families.
Today, Guo has about a dozen different dishes that range from traditional Chinese dishes to western-style Chinese.
He says it was a different experience for him back in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
‘I’ve lost my business’ Guo told CBC News he lost his business because of the federal increases to the minimums, and it was hard for him to compete with a lot of other Chinese restaurants.
When I was young, we would cook the food.
We used to go to the Chinese market and buy some products.
We did our best to survive.
Since moving to this city, the Chinese restaurants have lost their business, he said.
I’m really struggling financially and I’ve lost the business.
Now that the minimum salaries are coming up, I’m not going to be able to afford to pay my employees full-timers.
So I’m going to close up and I will have to move the rest of the time.
I think people are going to realize the fact that there are people in this country who are struggling to survive,” Guo said.
