Raise the minimum wage in Alberta to $15/hour now!

This petition had 65 supporters


" As per the platform and promise of the NDP government in Alberta, the minimum wage is to be slowly increased until reaching $15 by 2018. At present the estimated living wage in both Calgary and Edmonton sits at $17, and as the government itself has stated, when a “minimum wage isn’t sufficient for low-income earners to meet their needs, [t]hat is simply not acceptable”, then it could only make sense for us to ask in turn: why wait, and why is it once again the burden of the workers to be patient?

Immediate needs require immediate action, of course—and poverty, if nothing else, thrives on inaction and apathy. The time for living wages is not 3 years from now, but right now. "
