Calgary group petitioning province to raise minimum wage

Calgary group petitioning province to raise minimum wage A group of Calgary workers is launching a petition Monday, to make sure the NDP keeps its promise to raise the minimum wage.They will be stationed beside the Marlborough CTrain station in northeast Calgary at 4:30 p.m. hoping to garner signatures.The petition calls on the Alberta government to immediately pass its policy to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2018.It reads: “$15 by 2018 is still a compromise, and it’s beyond due!”One of the group’s spokespersons, Cecilia, says workers deserve stability and dignity and are instead having to turn to charity, fearing rent increases, and scraping by to afford childcare. by Kaitlin Lee Posted Jun 1, 2015 6:58 am MDT Last Updated Jun 1, 2015 at 7:10 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Thinkstock
