Adjust minimum wage to the relative cost of living in the area

This petition had 16 supporters

Today the wage earned by 1,253,000 people is based exclusively on the well-being of corporate giants who pilfer billions out of the pockets of the 1,253,000 who often work 50 hour weeks to simply get by. These problems are often amplified by the high costs of living characteristic of large metropolitan areas. In Vancouver and Toronto where the average rent of a one bedroom condo is $1,900, a person who makes minimum wage will be making this amount as their monthly salary making it impossible to live an average life while living near their place of work. This disparity between cost of living needs to be adjusted to take into consideration the cost of living for the area. This new system will help individuals who live in areas with high costs of living like Vancouver and Toronto live being able to afford rent and cost of life. In a system where this idea of relative minimum wage is applied, individuals working in expensive areas will have a higher minimum wage compared to individuals working in cheaper areas. This petition will be signed and sent to the Kyle Peterson the Member of Parliament for Newmarket-Aurora once it reaches 200 signatures.
