The Saskatchewan provincial government has requested the Saskatchewan Minimum Wage Board to consider setting the minimum wage at the Low Income Cutoff (also known as the poverty level). And then indexing future minimum wage increases to increases in the Consumer Price Index.
Leader-Post Reporter, Neil Scott, has filed this story.
They (the government) are inviting submissions on these topics, with a deadline for submissions being May 31, 2007.
I think both concepts merit serious consideration.
