Surrey ACORN joined trade union activists in calling on the government of British Columbia to raise the minimum wage. British Columbia currently has the highest overall cost of living, but the lowest minimum wage.
"Every time we drop into last place, the province raises the wages a little. Not enough to be first; only enough to say 'we're not last,'" said Nicole Joliet in her speech representing ACORN. "British Columbia should be a national leader."
ACORN is a proud partner in the Fight for 15. ACORN members in Surrey will be joining in a day of tabling at the Newton Exchange on Saturday, June 18th.
