Regular JJ Bean customers may have noticed that the price of a full-bodied cup of Railtown has risen by a few cents. When the company had to increase wages for its Ontario employees to meet provincial law, it decided to also increase staff pay in Vancouver. So we just decided to bite the bullet and do what is right for everybody," said John Neate, founder of JJ Bean. JJ Bean said increasing the wages of its Vancouver staff was the honourable thing to do. Labour Minister Harry Bains said he is well aware of concerns from Ontario businesses, which say the wage increase in that province happened too fast.
