Ontarians deserve a $14 minimum wage

Whereas an $11.00/hour minimum wage – as proposed by the current Ontario government – will still mean that full-time minimum wage earners live 16% below the poverty line; and

Whereas as a matter of principle, the minimum wage should generate income above the poverty line; and

Whereas a $14 minimum wage would mean that a full-time worker would earn an income that is 10% above the Low Income Measure; therefore

We the undersigned call on the Ontario Legislative Assembly to increase in the minimum wage to $14 an hour for all workers and thereafter be indexed to cost of living increases.
