Poll: What do you think of the province’s timing to increase the minimum wage to $15.20 by 2021?


The B.C. government has announced the province’s minimum wage will go up to $15.20 an hour in 2021.

The province’s move comes as a result of work done by the fair wages commission, set up last summer to plot out how to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, as part of the NDP’s campaign promises.
