In other news: BC minimum wage remains at $8

I just read that effective October 1 the minimum wage in Manitoba will be increasing to $9 per hour. This was done to “keep Manitoba near the middle of the pack when it comes to minimum-wage rates among Canadian jurisdictions.” I wonder what that says about BC with its $6/hour training wage; its $8 minimum wage and all its abused immigrants and international students working illegally for less than that. I imagine there are lots of farmers’ families in Manitoba making less than that but at least they don’t need to pay the outrageous rents demanded in Vancouver.
