About 26,000 Albertans will be getting a raise in September.
The province is hiking the general minimum wage by 35 cents an hour. Effective September 1, those paid the minimum will get $9.75 an hour. There won't be a change to the liquor server minimum wage, which will stay at $9.05 an hour. After taxes, Alberta's new general minimum wage will rank second in Canada.
