We are all struggling to live on the minimum wage. It is ridiculous not to raise it, to freeze it for too long. When you go the grocery store, food prices are way up. Rent is increasing every year. And to add on to that, the TTC is increasing transit fares. Everything is going up.
We are hardworking people. But with the current minimum wage, it is either you go hungry or pay your rent. We are not living beyond our means we are living within it. It is time to increase the minimum wage.
All of us we should get together and push the politicians to be aware that people are struggling to survive. We deserve a better life. We have to demand it. I will fight, I will march and I will campaign with all the other groups and organizations to make sure that something is done about it.
