Cant we raise the minimum wage in BC, Canada?
I wish to direct everybody's attention, that British Columbia of Canada, has the lowest minimum wage in ALL of Canada, with $8 an hour? As most people are aware, by 2010, the HST tax would be applied, which means one thing, prices will be more expensive than they are today, and if i could say, the things today are already quite pricey.
Can't we help our friends are families, that works extra hard to make an income to support there family, by raising the minimum wage in Canada?? I truly believe that there should be balance... If the tax and prices were to increase, our income should also increase...
Of course this is just my opinion, I would love to hear from all your opinions.
British Columbia has the lowest minimum wage of $8/hour, I truly believe it should be increased. Would you agree? or Disagree?
