    I’ve met thousands of residents in Hamilton over my years of engagement and during this electoral campaign for Ward 3 City Council. Residents know, a living wage is essential for bringing improved conditions for working people, businesses, and our local economy.

    Elected Living Wage Supporters


    Low Wage work hurts families and undermines the local economy.

    The rapid rise of low wage jobs is a growing concern in Ontario communities. Many of us no longer earn enough at our jobs to make ends meet. We face impossible choices. Buy food or paying the rent? Heat the apartment or fix the car? Growing numbers of us face spirally debt and constant anxiety about the future. More of us have long term health problems.
    In Ontario nearly 1.7 million workers work at lower paid jobs.

    There is a solution. It’s a Living Wage.

    Over 170 employers across the province have made the commitment to pay their employees at least a living wage. More and more individuals, community groups, employers and politicians are showing their support for the living wage. We are asking every candidate in the 2018 Municipal Elections across Ontario to support the living wage movement in the province.

    Municipalities hold a key to solving poverty by paying a living wage Municipal governments are anchor institutions in communities and have an opportunity to influence other employer organizations to do the right thing.

    Cities of the 21st century must stand for fairness and equality. And not just in words, but with wages.

    Should I be elected to public office, I pledge to advocate for our public sector employers to become certified Living Wage employers.
