Urgent! Last chance to show your support for $15/hour by Dec. 7

Monday, December 4, 2017

I've been listening to the people and organizations presenting at the Fair Wages Commission across the province, and the stories I heard highlight the urgent need for a $15/hr minimum wage. I heard from people struggling to pay rent as housing costs skyrocket.
I heard from parents making impossible choices about groceries, medication and school supplies. I heard from students who are working full-time and studying full-time just to keep ahead of tuition costs.
It's time to bring the minimum wage up to $15/hr. I'm asking you to add your voice to this important issue and send a letter to the Fair Wages Commission right now. It only take a few seconds, and it will make a huge difference in the lives of working people across BC.
You have until Dec 7th to send in your letter and help end poverty wages in BC.
Thank you for your support!
