$15 Minimum Wage In Manitoba By Next October

$15 Minimum Wage In A Year

WINNIPEG - Manitoba's plan to boost its minimum wage to $15 an hour by October of 2023 is coming under fire from both labour and business groups.

The province says the wage will increase from $11.95 an hour to $13.50 this October.

Then next April, it jumps again to $14.15 - before reaching $15 next October.

The Manitoba Federation of Labour says it's still not enough, while the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce says the increases will have a significant effect on small businesses.
