We have some exciting news. Today we are one step closer to ending poverty wages in BC.
This afternoon in Kamloops, John Horgan, the leader of the BC NDP, has made a commitment to implement a $15 per hour minimum wage!
If the BC NDP is elected in 2017, they will raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour by the end of their first term.
We need to make sure that John Horgan knows he and the BC NDP are on the right track. We need politicians to take bold economic positions that will make a real difference in the lives of working people. Because the people who work in our province must be able to afford to live here.
This is a huge step forward for our campaign and most importantly for low-wage workers in BC. Your support has built the momentum necessary to ensure that raising the minimum wage will be an important issue in next year’s provincial election.
Together we can build an economy that works for everyone.
Excited for the progress we have made together,
The Fight for $15 Team
