How do you feel about the introduced legislation to increase Ontario’s general minimum wage from $11.40 per hour to:
$11.60 per hour on October 1, 2017 (already announced in March 2017)
$14 per hour on January 1, 2018
$15 per hour on January 1, 2019
This sounds like amazing news for employees that are currently earning minimum wage!
However, will we start to see more self checkout counters in stores and supermarkets? Will employers start cutting employee hours? Will products start to become more expensive to cover the increase in salaries?
