Local pressure to raise Ontario’s minimum wage

  • Posted:

Local supporters of the drive to increase Ontario’s minimum wage are meeting to call for more action.

A forum being held Tuesday, sponsored by the Hamilton Roundtable for Poverty Reduction and Hamilton Organizing for Poverty Elimination (HOPE), is designed to let local supporters voice opinions they were denied the chance to share at a provincial panel.

What: Raise the Wage forum

When: Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.

Where: Hamilton Public Library Central Branch, Hamilton Room, 55 York Blvd.

The panel held “consultations” in eight communities across the province but did not come to Hamilton. Its goal is to bring recommendations on raising the wage to the provincial government by the end of the year.
