Unfreeze The Pause On Increasing The Minimum Wage to $15
This petition made change with 71 supporters!
On January 1, 2019, the minimum wage in Ontario was supposed to be raised to $15, but unfortunately the Premier Doug Ford has put a pause in raising the minimum wage. With the cost of living and housing prices rising every year, raising the minimum wage to $15 is a necessary action. Although, people may think this will cause a loss of jobs, the evidence proves otherwise. In August 2018, just 8 months after the minimum wage was raised to $14 from $11.40, Ontario's unemployment rate dropped to an 18-year low of just 5.4%. By signing this petition, you can help battle against income inequality and help empower citizens living in poverty.
