For nearly 15 years the Quebec government has limited grocery store chains to no more than four employees on Saturday and Sunday nights. One reason was to protect depanneurs, another to limit awkward shifts in store employees’ family lives. The result was long waits for the customer, low swearing and queue jumping. Reportedly, the grocery chains and their unions are now negotiating an agreement to lift the Sat. and Sun. shopping restrictions.
Should the government stay out of this questions and let the unions and the stores decide? Would this be unfair to some employees and depanneurs? Does the present situation cause you delay and frustration?
