Ontario is gearing up to announce an increase to the minimum wage tomorrow – as it rolls out details of major changes to the province’s labour laws.

Premier Kathleen Wynne says the move is necessary because the economy is doing well – but not everyone is seeing the effects in their everyday lives.

The minimum wage is currently $11.40 an hour –  and it goes up each year  with inflation – but unions have been calling for a $15 minimum wage.

The liberals will also be revealing plans to change provincial labour laws – following recommendations in a recent government-commissioned report.

The changes move closer to making work less precarious in Ontario – and are expected to include measures to make work schedules more predictable  – and legislate equal pay for equal work – whether employees work full time or not.
