NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR has one of the lowest minimum wage rates in Canada, at $11.15 per hour.  Fewer than 6 per cent of Canadians live in jurisdictions with a lower minimum wage.  Common Front NL calls for the province to adopt a $15 per hour minimum wage, in line with other jurisdictions that are moving forward on minimum wages, including Alberta, B.C., and Ontario, representing more than two thirds of Canadians.  A $15 minimum wage will help lift people out of poverty,  reduce inequality and put more money into the local economy.
