Raise the Minimum Wage

Newfoundland and Labrador has one of the lowest minimum wages in Canada, and we continue to fall further behind. Sign the NDP Caucus petition. Tell government you want fairness and affordability.

Newfoundland and Labrador has one of the lowest minimum wages in Canada, resulting in many minimum wage workers earning poverty incomes. We must raise the wage to a fairer level of $15.00 as a step towards a living wage before indexing the minimum wage to inflation.

If government gets its way, our minimum wage will be indexed at its current level, and the lowest-paid workers in the province will be living in poverty forever.

Other Canadian jurisdictions are implementing or considering a $15 minimum wage. Our workers deserve a fair minimum wage, too.
