Ontario's Minimum Wage Hike?
Since 2003 the government has raised the minimum wage nine times. The most recent minimum wage hike was October 1, 2017 which announced a 15-cent hike in the minimum wage to $11.40 an hour. The 1.5% increase, which the Liberals have indexed to the Consumer Price Index, adds up to annual earnings for a person on minimum wage that’s about $800 above the poverty line in Ontario ($19,930).
Unfortunately that’s still about 17% below a living wage when you factor in the rising costs of food and housing. Every Ontario resident deserves a fair days wage for a fair days work. It is not however enough to raise the minimum wage. It is also necessary to let minimum wage earners keep more money in their pockets. The basic tax exemption for minimum age earners should be set at the poverty line so that they pay no income tax!
