My 19-year-old daughter, who is back home from the University of Victoria until September, has found a summer job as a hostess at a well known B.C. restaurant a couple of blocks from our house. She’ll be working four- to six-hour shifts, three or four days a week.
She’ll get minimum wage, which was $8 an hour until April 30, when it went up to $8.75 an hour. But she expects to move into waitressing, where she can make far more money from tips.
