Increase minimum wage to $10 an hour/No to Ontario MPP pay raise sign now

Recently, two proposed bills by the Government of Ontario have come to our attention as concerned Ontario residents, namely - the proposed increase of minimum wage to $10 an hour, and the 25\% pay increase for Ontario MPPs.

It is our hope that a) MPPs do not receive this raise, and that b) minimum wage be increased to $10 an hour.

While many struggle in our communities to feed themselves, it is appalling to think that MPPs salaries increase from $88, 771 to $147, 700.

Even though the Liberal government has raised minimum wage in recent years, it still has not kept up with inflation. In essence, the current minimum wage has less purchasing power than it did in 1995.

We do not argue that MPPs should make decent wages, but $88, 771 is sufficient. It is our understanding that this wage increase is designed to keep MPPs from taking more lucrative jobs in Federal politics or elsewhere. While this may be true, there are many other public and/or non-profit jobs that lose people to more lucrative jobs i.e. shelter workers, street outreach workers, those who work with disabled individuals etc. These workers have not seen 25\% pay increases in recent years, and neither have those making minimum wage and social assistance.

Please, increase minimum wage to $10 an hour and do not vote for an increase to MPPs salaries.

    It's hard enough for me to stay in university on minimum wage: a raise would mean a raise in my standard of living as well as a raise in my marks, since I would have time to actually study instead of having to work every free minute to try and make rent.
