Ontario’s minimum wage is being held at 14-dollars an hour.
It was scheduled to go to 15-dollars January 1st.
Labour Minister Laurie Scott says the wage eventually increase, but not until two years from now.
“As of October 2020, annual increases to minimum wage will be based on an economically sound metric, inflation.”
Scott says there were calls to roll back the wage, that would have been immensely unfair to workers.
As part repealing former labour laws, the PCs will replace existing Personal Emergency Leave rules and allow workers three unpaid day for sickness, two for bereavement and three for family responsibilities.
