The BC Federation of Labour is once again calling for a hike in the minimum wage.
President Irene Lanzinger says the province’s minimum wage has dropped to the second lowest in Canada.
“The only province behind us is New Brunswick and they have a plan to go to $11 an hour.”
Lanzinger says people earning minimum wage are $6,000 below the poverty line.
B.C.’s minimum wage is $1045.
