The same people who whine about a "living wage" don't care much when the wage for many drops to $0 per hour.
Two new reports warn that plans to boost the minimum wage in Ontario and Alberta will likely result in higher unemployment in the provinces.
Alberta’s move to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2018 could lead to the loss of roughly 25,000 jobs, according to a report published by the CD Howe Institute. Meanwhile, a TD bank report says Ontario’s plan to boost the minimum wage could contribute to the loss of up to 150,000 jobs in the province by the end of the decade.
After these minimum wage hikes, we'll see higher prices for foods, rent spikes, expensive clothing and then unexpectedly soon that "living wage" will no longer be sufficient ... raise the minimum wage to $20 per hour! Rinse and repeat.
