As of today…Ontario’s minimum wage has gone up up 25 cents to $11.25 per hour.
The increase is the result of recent changes to the Employment Standards Act, that tie minimum-wage increases to Ontario’s Consumer Price Index.
For Students under 18, minimum wage has gone from $10.30 per hour to $10.55. Liquor servers, from 9.55 per hour to $9.80.
Is it enough? (Is Ontario’s minimum wage “liveable” on? Should it be more??) Are you a small business owner? What does this increase mean for you?
As always…I look forward to your 2 cents worth. (Sorry. It’s still 2-cents…no pay raise there, my friend!)
