The minimum wage apparently has gone up substantially since the last agreement. I think the difference between the minimum wage and the new wages offered is less than it was under the old contract. When the minimum wage goes up all those near it feel underpaid. Another consequence of raising the minimum wage.

Also remember the numbers are in Canadian dollars so much less than if in Anerican dollars.

Remember everyone deserves a LIVING. I mean a living ,not slave wages. A society is not good for anybody if someone is living in desperate state.

and on Jan 1 2019 it goes up another $1 to $15 Can ( about $11.50 US)


I made $16 a hr in 1986 at the distillery located down the street from the casino which was one of the top places in the city to work outside the auto industry

32 years later the Casino thinks $19 is great pay

price of gas for your car today in Windsor is $1.22 a litre 3.78L to a US gallon $4.61 CAN for a US gallon or about $3.55 US a gallon
eggs $2 a doz
milk $4.50 a gallon
bread $2 a loaf

electricity in Ontario is the highest in Canada!!! we pay 3 times as much for the same amount used as the provinces on either side of us

want to buy a case of beer for the weekend $44 for 24 11.5 oz bottles

and on and on...... its expensive to live here

I never criticize what people are willing to strike for. Never cross a picket line. Just the way I was raised, I guess

You could give them $100 an hour. The problem is, the cost of everything goes up by the same rate and you're right back where you were....in poverty.
