In the past 3 years the cost of living has increased dramatically. This cost has unduly affected the poorest in Canada and benefited the wealthy. Asset prices in housing and stocks have surged, inflating the bank accounts of property and asset owners, while wages at the bottom have stagnated. People earning a minimum wage have seen the value of their own labour (the only material thing they own) become devalued with inflation. This situation is entirely unsustainable and is increasing the divide between the rich and poor exponentially.
We believe the minimum wage should be raised to a fairly calculated living wage and then permanently tagged to annual inflation calculations to prevent the utter devaluation of human labour, our most precious resource.
