WINNIPEG - Manitoba labour minister Jon Reyes says an increase in the provincial minimum wage to $15.30 an hour in October will help workers deal with the rising cost of living.
Before that, the rate is set to rise from the current $13.50 to $14.15 on April 1st.
Reyes says doing this in two steps will give employers time to adjust.
Under a subsidy announced by the province last fall, businesses with up to 20 workers can apply for as much as 50 cents an hour for each worker earning minimum wage.
