What is the minimum wage in canada
Does Canada have a national minimum wage? In America there is a federal minimum wage, but does Canada have one?
The minimum wage varies from province to province. I live in Ontario and the current minimum is $10.25/hr. They are increasing it to $11.00/hr in June.
Currently the highest minimum wage is in the province Nunavut, and it is $11.00/hr.
The lowest is in Alberta, and it is $9.95/hr.
The average is about $10.00/hr.
It also depends on the job classification and your age. Typically, servers and bartenders make less than the minimum as they get Tips. Those under 18 years of age also make less than the minimum.
I hope this helps.

Once again there is a call to raise the minimum wage.Now....common sense and a little education will tell you that when you raise the minimum wage, prices go up to compensate. Also, you stand the chance of having a nice little spike in unemployment from the smaller businesses that can no longer...

Here are two arguments that I have heard, separately, from people on the left.1 - Minimum wage doesn't cost jobs.2 - Companies outsource to countries with low wages.Let's examine that for a moment.
