Hi All,The holidays are coming to an end and 2018 is peeking from the corner.
Ontario welcomes the minimum wage hike with mixed feelings. Along with the wage hike, will liberals bring a tax hime too? What about people already earning $14/hour? Will they see an increase or they will continue to earn the same?
What if you are making $15/hour? Will your wage go up?
Most people told me, the people currently earning $14 and above may not see an increase in their earnings.
Everyone agreed on one thing: we are going to see increased prices at the grocery store.
I believe that the increase in minimum wage is not going to do any favour for those working poor. They can be benefitted only if the prices of essentials stay the same as before.
Some people are worried about employers cutting their hours. May be the liberals can win the next election too. But, will it do any good for the people? I am pretty sure that the person with the "hungry" board at the 401 exit on Markham road will continue to be there.
What your thoughts about minimum wage increase?
