    I agree 100 percent. The only thing it benefits is the government more tax dollars. Then they spend it on worthless things. Lots of people will end up worse off than before.
    If a company wants to give raises let them. At 15.00 minimum wage I would have to get a job as I couldn’t afford the increases in prices on stuff

    I would like to state that I make more than minimum wage but less than $15 so this plan to boost minimum wage will help put more money in my pocket. So as a person who will benefit I support it somewhat. On the flip side I understand what businesses are going to be going through and that isn’t good. The added expenses are going to force some businesses to reduce staff or close all together. It sounds like you are a business owner or a supervisor? I can certainly understand your point of view. I just have to ask where are all these high paying jobs you say are available? Where I live it is extremely hard to find a job that pays more than $14 per hour. I agree that the Gov’t will definitely benefit from this, this is also an election stunt the Liberals are looking for votes. I hope the Liberals get booted from office as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this issue. Take care

    • Hey Matt. Yeah I don’t own it it’s my dad business but have been doing it 18 years and probably will take over. What do you do? Almost every construction job pays over 15 a hr.I’m in the hamilton peel area and just looking on kijii there is tonnes of work out there. Well glad to heAR you will benefit from it but it’s 2 years away you should plan to make more by then. Of course if your super remote then the situation is different. I agree it’s another ploy to get some votes. Altho I got some email from hydro one yesterday that they want to increase the rates so we will see how the Liberals attempt to lower hydro will do.

  3. I am torn as to what the correct solution is. I totally agree with your view points, but I also want every human to have a recent standard of living (even with a burger flipping job). But, it will have an overall effect of pushing up wages … which might or might not be good for the economy. Social concepts such as minimum wages are deployed with best intentions, but sure there are going to be people who will smooch of the system. Nothing we can do about it. I am a Libertarian.

    Based on what I see, this is a tactic that the government is using to buy votes. I am not against people making a living wage, but I think that they need to earn it rather than getting it for free. This may seem harsh, but I don’t believe in giving free ride to people.

    I don’t want to the minimum wage to increase, as I think it’s prevent the youth from getting the beginner job that they need.

    On the second hand, I was reading an article that youth unemployment is way high, it’s because their parents didn’t want them to work minimum wage. I think the mentality has shift a lot.

    I started working in the family when I was 8-9 years old.

    On business perspective, I can’t even hire a guy to do a decent job nowadays, as they all expecting $20/hr and still do crappy job, that I had to go behind and clean up or fix up, or finishing up. So, wage increase doesn’t solve my small business problem.
