The BC Poverty Reduction Coalition, along with First Call BC, has partnered with the BC Federation of Labour’s Fight for 15 campaign, in it’s March 2015 monthly theme, in order to raise awareness of the connections between the minimum wage and poverty. As part of this effort, they have issued a joint fact sheet with staggering statistics that detail the dire situation that British Columbians are facing.
The Fight for 15 campaign has been active for a few months, and it’s already producing amazing results: the petition is close to 23 thousand signatures, and every month events are happening in more places across the province. We invite you to take a look and support this call for an increase in the minimum wage.
