Minimum Wage Goes Up October 1

2

Ontario is increasing the general minimum wage for the fourth consecutive year, which will bring the wage up to $11.60 on October 1, 2017.

As a part of Ontario’s plan for Fair Workplaces and Better Jobs, the general minimum wage would again increase to $14 on January 1, 2018, and to $15 on January 1, 2019, which would be followed by annual increases at the rate of inflation.

Ontario’s plan to create more opportunity and security for workers would also ensure part-time and temporary help agency workers are paid the same hourly wage as full-time workers, introduce paid sick days for every worker, enable at least three weeks’ vacation after five years with the same employer and step up enforcement of employment laws.

  1. GREAT IDEA.
    PPL DO NOT UNDERSTAND INFLATION AND THINK THAT $1 ALWAYS = $1
    $1 TODAY IS .99$ TOMORROW AND IT CONTINUES TO GO DOWN, FAST.

    WITH OUR MONEY BEING WORTH LESS DAILY AND THE RISE IN EVERYDAY FOOD/ELECTRICITY/GAS PRICES, IT SEEMS A NO BRAINER TO GIVE POOR PPL A HELPING HAND.

    IT ALMOST GUARANTEED THAT WHO EVER OPPOSES THIS WAGE INCREASE EITHER HAS A WELL PAYING, STEADY JOB, AND DOESNT NEED TO WORRY ABOUT EATING OR TURNING LIGHTS ON.

    MAYBE THOSE WHO OPPOSE THINK THERE SHOULD BE NO MIN WAGE. AND NO WELFARE, AND WE SHOULD KILL EACH OTHER(CRIME) TO SURVIVE.

  2. Another nail in wacky Wynne’s political coffin, she really needs to step down now. Ontario has had it to the gills with her and her insane ideas that are financially killing Canadians.
