Submission to the Fair Wages Commission

In December 2017, West Coast LEAF submitted recommendations to BC’s Fair Wages Commission, with a focus on closing the gap between the living wage and the minimum wage and addressing the gendered dimensions of economic insecurity. Our recommendations included:

  • A universal increase of the minimum wage to $15 per hour by January 2019
  • The elimination of the tiered system of minimum wage under which some employees earning minimum wage are paid less than others
  • A mechanism for regular review of the minimum wage
  • Steps towards adoption and implementation of living wage policies
