It's time to raise the minimum wage! PSAC members joined with hundreds of people in Vancouver on the Canadian National Day of Action for a $15 Minimum Wage. British Columbia has the lowest minimum wage in Canada and this leaves full-time workers living thousands of dollars below the poverty line. We believe that work should lift you out of poverty, not keep you in it. It's time for the BC government to make a real increase the minimum wage so that nobody is left behind.
