The BC NDP has just delivered on one of their main campaign promises to increase BC's Minimum wage to $15 Dollars an hour by 2021.
But not only have they just rolled out the minimum wage increase plan this morning, but it will surpass the $15 dollar/hour goal and it will reach $15.20 by June 2021.
The minimum wage in BC will do a major jump to $12.60/hour this June, and then increase once a year every June until it reaches $15.20 per hour
A MAJOR VICTORY for the minimum wage worker (which is a huge percentage of the population)
What are your thoughts on the increase?
Chances are, if you're a business owner you are not gonna be happy, but if you are an employee working in the minimum wage sector you likely be celebrating.
