NDP REALITY CHECK: LIBERALS DON’T THINK ANY WORKERS MAKING MINIMUM WAGE DESERVE A RAISE
Tom Mulcair will reinstate the federal minimum wage – eliminated by the Liberals – and set it at $15 an hour. This will make a real difference in the lives of tens of thousands of hardworking Canadians.
But Justin Trudeau doesn’t think they deserve a raise – he won’t even agree to reinstate the federal minimum wage.
Close to a million people work in federally regulated industries like banking, telecommunications and transportation. And Statistics Canada says that as many as 100,000 make less than $15 an hour.
Tom Mulcair’s plan would reduce income inequality and directly help tens of thousands of workers make ends meet.
That’s why more and more Canadians are putting their trust in the Tom Mulcair’s NDP to defeat Stephen Harper and bring change to Ottawa.
