Jagmeet Singh – NDP

Mr Singh is in full support of national minimum wage increase to $15/h and has been in support of it for a number of years. The concerning part about this was whem he said “we have no plan for jobs after the minimum wage increase”. That sound like there’s no ideas in apl these years floating around in that party except just increasing minimum wage.

Erin O’Toole – Conservatives

By the looks of it there is no official statement yet. Just past history of not supporting a minimum wage increase.

People’s party of canada

Investments in R&D, innovation, more efficient production processes, machinery and equipment are critical to improvements in productivity and living standards. Improved productivity leads to better, higher-paying jobs.

ENCOURAGING INVESTMENT AND PRODUCTIVITY GROWTH

In a way this is supporting living wages because it opens the market to create higher paying jobs.

Green Party of Canada

in 2015 the greens rejected $15/h minimum wage would help solve any inequality

2020 the greens updayed their social contract to support national $15/h minimum wage. https://www.greenparty.ca/en/platform/renew-social-contract

Bloc Quebecois

unable to find a statement on their website about minimum wage or living wages.

The review


FACT:
Liberals
are promising a national minimum wage increase to $15/h but we have heard that since 2015. They are currently in power now and haven’t done anything to increase it or give living wages or even try other methods such as creating a market for innovation that demands a higher paying workforce.

To read our opinion peace on this article Minimum wage increase vs living wages. What’s the difference?
