November 4, 2010 - SFL Makes Submission to Minister on Minimum Wage Indexation
Earlier this morning, the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour made a submission to the Saskatchewan Minister responsible for Labour Relations and Workplace Safety, the Honourable Don Morgan, concerning the indexation of the provincial minimum wage. The SFL believes, as outlined in the submission to the Minister, that Saskatchewan’s minimum wage should first be raised to 75 percent of Canada’s Average Industrial Wage and then indexed to the provincial Consumer Price Index (CPI).
Since 1911, individuals and organizations across the globe have come together to celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD).
Working people across Saskatchewan were disappointed today to see how few of their priorities are reflected in the 2014 federal budget. Once again, the Harper government seems to have missed an opportunity to improve the lives of the millions of people that work across Canada.
