CBC Radio One in Vancouver had a right-winger host a call-in show today on BC's minimun wage with a negative Rep from BC's Board of Trade who was full of lies, and an articulate woman from Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives who was excellent.
During the show a caller mentioned that Australia has a minimum wage of over $18. an hour and small businesses are doing just fine thank you.
So tired of the right-wing mainstream media, ganging up with the right-wing business community, to bash the less privileged and less powerful people in our socity.
Rather sad actually!
Good on Irene Lanzinger / Aaron Eckman and crew at the BC Fed for initiating the $15 min wage campaign in BC and also Seth Klein and the crew at the CCPA in BC.
You Go Harry (Bains)!
