  • The minimum wage is going up – but we’re calling for a freeze

In advance of the increase, we have been vocal in raising awareness on how drastic minimum wage hikes can have serious impacts on local communities. To help preserve jobs, we are calling on the Alberta government to freeze the minimum wage at the current levels.
