A $14 minimum wage and an overhaul to Ontario's employment and labour laws are among the recommendations a coalition of young workers and organizations will present to the The Premier's Council on Youth Opportunities February 27.

In Ontario, where youth unemployment rates are twice as high as the overall provincial youth unemployment rate, the job situation of young people has become a priority issue for many labour and anti-poverty organizations.

The recommendations are included in the report, "Addressing Youth Unemployment and Underemployment," the result of six months of consultations after an Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) hosted forum on youth underemployment.
