Minimum Wage Increase to $15 by January 2019

Posted May 30, 2017

Today, the Ontario Government announced plans to the increase minimum wage to $15 by 2019, to raise Employment Standards and tighten enforcement, and to make important changes to the Labour Relations Act.  

ACORN members are pleased to see this step forward.

“An increase of this much will have a significant impact on low wage workers, it will make it easier for them to feed families, and pay the rent," said ACORN Leader Alejandra Ruiz Vargas.

Congratulations to the Fight for $15 and Fairness and Community and Labour allies across the province who organized to make this happen!
