Questionnaire for Minimum Wage and Low Wage Earners
What the NL NDP Caucus Heard
Our current provincial minimum wage ($11.40 per hour) is under review by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. The NL NDP Caucus believes that the voices of minimum or low wage earners (defined here as those who earn $15 per hour or under) must be adequately heard in any review process.
On December 4, 2019, the NDP Caucus launched a questionnaire for minimum wage and low wage earners. The NDP Caucus defines low wage as those who earn $15 per hour or under.
The NDP Caucus Questionnaire was available online, open for just under six weeks, and able to be completed anonymously without requiring a log in or the creation of a user profile.
There were 426 respondents. In this report, you will find the results of the questionnaire along with our summary and observations at the end.
