Wages just got boosted in two provinces!
Workers with Chipotle Canada jobs are now making more money thanks to a new boost to minimum hourly wages, and they can now make over $100,000 a year in less than four years of working there.
The raised wages in Canada mean there's now a $15 minimum hourly rate at Ontario restaurants and a $16 minimum hourly rate in B.C. restaurants. This applies to new and existing crew members along with hourly managers.
The minimum wage in B.C. is $15.20 per hour and in Ontario, it's $14.25 per hour but it's going up to $14.35 per hour as of October 1, 2021. Both of those wages are lower than the new hourly rates being offered at Chipotle locations in the two provinces.
Chipotle said that employees can advance to the position of Restaurateur, the highest General Manager position available, in just three and a half years. The average compensation for that job is more than $100,000.
There are more than 20 locations in Ontario and B.C., some of which currently have jobs available and are hiring new workers. Also, Chipotle plans to open seven new locations in the two provinces before the end of 2021 and positions could open up at those spots.
