Statement by MPP Andrea Horwath on the Alberta Government's Progress on $15 Minimum Wage

“I would like to applaud Premier Notley and her government on today’s announcement to implement a $15 minimum wage by 2018. Here in Ontario, the Liberal government has stood by and watched as work has become more insecure and unstable—instead of stepping up and ensuring better wages and benefits for the people of this province. We are the first and the only political party in Ontario to support a $15 minimum wage, and if the Wynne government won’t do it, then Ontarians will have the opportunity in two short years to elect one that will. It’s time to raise the floor for every worker in this province.”
