After news of some Tim Hortons owners cutting tips, paid breaks, and health benefits, people are protesting for fair wages at more than 50 locations across Canada.

With stock options and other perks, his total compensation is over $6 million.

The company previously admonished franchise owners for punitive cuts to workers' benefits, saying such actions "do not reflect the values of our brand."
