BC Now Has Lowest Minimum Wage in Canada – TheTyee.ca – Mobile

Despite strong public support for a significant pay raise for British Columbia’s worst paid workers, as of Friday the province will have the lowest minimum wage in the country.

“We live in the most expensive province in the country and we should be leaders on the minimum wage,” said Irene Lanzinger, president of the B.C. Federation of Labour. “We got to be last because the government did not take appropriate action on it.”

In September 2015, the B.C. government raised the minimum wage by 20 cents an hour to $10.45, with a lower wage of $9.20 an hour for servers who may receive tips.

Thanks. God bless.
