Tim Horton’s Free Coffee for Life offer to Harry and Meghan draws flak from Canadians
Tim Horton’s may have been trying to jump in on the news of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s announcement to stay in Canada for half of the year by offering the royals free coffee for life.
However, netizens were not quite amused by the offer. Instead, the post brought forth the ire of Canadians over the low wages of the coffee chain’s workers and said that Horton’s should first focus on the welfare of their employees than worrying over the royals.
Some netizens said that the royals can afford to buy the entire chain at a drop of a hat but Hortons employees are being shortchanged for their labors.
Some suggested that the money for the free coffee for Meghan and Harry be redirected towards the employees wages instead.
No pressure, Meghan and Harry, but if you do choose to move to Canada, free coffee for life. Think about it.
