The NDP Has Condemned the Pallister Government For Refusing to Support a Living Wage.



  Flin Flon MLA and NDP Labor Critic Tom Lindsey introduced a proposal this week that if accepted would have seen the government establish in law the principle that a person who works full time should earn enough to live above the poverty line.  He said the minister should stand up today and say absolutely that’s a lofty goal, it’s the right goal, it’s the goal that any caring government would stand up and support, it’s the goal that any caring individual would stand up and support, so he looks forward to this minister and this government standing up saying yes we will support this amendment, yes we believe that hard working Manitobans should live above the poverty line.


In a release the NDP stated their disappointment that the government refused to accept the proposal and instead imposed a minimum wage increase of only 15 cents that won’t kick in until October 1st.
