Summation:

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne has announced a plan to increase the provincial minimum wage to $15 an hour by Jan. 1, 2019.

The increase would be phased in over the next 18 months, rising to $14 an hour on Jan. 1, 2018, and then to $15 the following January.

After that, it will rise annually with inflation.

"People are working longer, jobs are less secure, benefits are harder to come by and protections are fewer and fewer," said Wynne. "In a time of change like this, when the very nature of work is being transformed, we need to make certain that our workers are treated fairly."

Wynne also announced several other proposed changes to workforce rules:

  • Equal pay would be mandated for part-time workers doing the same job as a full-time workers.
  • After five years with the same employer, the minimum vacation entitlement for workers would rise to three weeks per year.
  • Employers would be required to pay a worker three hours of wages if the employer cancels a shift with less than 48 hours notice.
  • All workers would be given 10 personal emergency leave days a year, and a minimum of two of those days must be paid. (Currently only employees of large companies are entitled to this.)

Currently, Ontario's minimum wage is $11.40 an hour.


In other provinces, the current minimum ranges from $10.72 in Saskatchewan to $13 in Nunavut. Alberta became the first province to pass a $15 hourly wage, in September 2016, but it doesn't go into effect until October 2018.

In an interview with CBC Toronto on Monday, Wynne said the provincial economy is doing well enough to handle a significant wage boost.

Not happy because the increase did not immediately go into effect? I don't think that should come as a surprise to most.

I said on another thread that this would be the case. It's doublespeak for "Vote for us." The thing about government is that they can always make changes down the line to "reflect the current situation".

I think...if...you want to increase minimum wage you do it the way they did.

Less of a shock to small business and gives them time to plan.

I mentioned this a day or so ago. It's not a surprise. The lead time is dependent on whether or not they are elected and leaves the govt open for future adjustments.

Very true....but on the other hand what I said was valid as well.

Time will tell.

I agree however that this is a political play by the most disastrous, scandal ridden and corrupt government in Ontario's history.

I wonder if Wynne receives death threats? I know many politicians get hate mail.

Unless it is $0.00, there should be no minimum wage.

That is true. Expect an increase in automation.

Do you think that was not already coming?

Anyways, countries like Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Norway and Switzerland do not have government mandated minimum wages and have low unemployment.

I wonder why?

It puts seniors and the disabled further behind. As wages climb, so do prices - but pensions seldom do

How do people on fixed incomes adapt as lonewolf pointed out?

Also how do liberal countries in Europe have no minimum wage yet low unemployment....and high wages.

The government doesn't have to regulate everything you know.

Depends on the territory.

There are some places in the world where you may not need any regulation but in the west, corporations often operate on short term profit only and that actually leads to they're own downfall.

This will put pressure on them to actually invest instead of relying on cheap labour.

The countries I mentioned are in the West.
