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).
Late last week, representatives from the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour met with two Weyburn women who were fired from their long-time jobs in order to make room for temporary foreign workers.
Today, and every year on the second Wednesday of April, people around the globe will celebrate the International Day of Pink.
