The Alberta NDP recently announced that they’ve passed legislation to make the $15 an hour minimum wage a reality in 2018. The rate will rise to $12.20 in October and then by $1.40 in 2017 and 2018. And this can only be reversed by the NDP cabinet.
Critics say the hike will hurt businesses and consumers already dealing with an economic recession due to increasing costs. With the unemployment rate skyrocketing and people desperate to get back to work, is this what the government should be doing?
The NDP claim implementation of the minimum wage was based on many studies. But there are no studies.
Freedom of Information documents obtained by The Rebel tell a completely different story than the one being pushed out by the Alberta government.
Watch as I provide examples of contradictory information on the “studies” Notley touts.
The FOI documents suggest that the research hasn’t been done and that a more thorough investigation is required. And, any analysis that was done suggests that the policy is completely counter intuitive to what the NDP want the outcome to be.
There’s a big difference between wanting something to happen and making it happen in reality.
With the implementation of the new minimum wage policy, the NDP are showing their incompetence.
