|Poverty and inequality are taking a toll on our communities, yet BC is the only province without a comprehensive poverty reduction strategy.
Fortunately, the BC NDP government has committed to taking action. They have established a task force to consult on the key elements of a made in BC plan.
Raising the minimum wage is one key element of a comprehensive poverty reduction strategy, but there is more our government needs to do. We’ve worked with our friends at the BC Poverty Reduction Coalition to create a draft email with all of their recommendations.
Poverty and inequality cost all of us. Support our government in making change so that everyone has a chance to thrive in BC.
President, BC Federation of Labour
