Here is an excerpt of yesterday's article from the Star: (http://www.thestar.com/article/538716)
Forget dreams of a $10 minimum wage lifting thousands of workers out of poverty. A couple raising two young children in the GTA would each need to earn at least $16.60 an hour to have a decent quality of life, says a new study to be released today. A single parent with one child would need to earn $16.15 an hour.
Ontario's minimum wage is $8.75. It will rise to $10.25 in 2010.
