(Jan. 12/16) The Alberta economy has taken a hard fall, but the government hasn’t budged from its plan to introduce a $15 minimum wage by 2018 – and to eliminate the liquor server wage this year. Our campaign to slow down this plan is moving into high gear. It’s time to add your voice!
The Alberta government needs to hear how a 50% increase in the minimum wage would hurt small businesses and the provincial economy. We’re asking the province to slow down the minimum wage increase, introduce a gateway wage for youth, and retain the liquor server wage, instead of putting even more jobs at risk.
Join our campaign! For more information on how you can help make it a success, please contact Joyce Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Mark von Schellwitz at email@example.com or 1-866-300-7675.
