Raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour
Show your support!
Every year, the cost of living goes up in Montreal. The price of transportation, food and housing continues to rise, while the wages of many workers stay the same. According to a Institut de recherche et d’informations socio-économiques report (French only), a person needs an annual income of $24,532 to live in our city. Yet thousands of full-time workers barely earn $20,000 per year.
The minimum wage should keep pace with the cost of living and allow everyone to live with dignity and not have to sacrifice basic necessities. That’s why the NDP has launched a campaign to increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour. Our plan takes concrete action to fight growing income inequality – action that is particularly needed in light of record-breaking salaries and bonuses being paid to the CEOs of major corporations.
