But there is already a minimum wage, why do we need a living wage?


The minimum wage is the same across the province. Living wage reflects what people need to earn to cover the actual costs of living in their community.

For years the minimum wage has been too low to lift even someone who is employed full-time above the poverty line. The living wage is based on the principle that if you work full-time, full-year you should earn enough to make ends meet and participate in your community.
