Saskatchewan to raise minimum wage to $10.20 an hour; plans for regular indexing
REGINA - Minimum-wage earners in Saskatchewan will be pocketing more money this year.
The provincial government says the minimum wage is going up to $10.20 an hour from $10 starting in October.
Labour Relations Minister Don Morgan says increasing the minimum wage will give minimum-wage earners more disposable income and improve their standard of living.
The government also says it will introduce regulations in the next few weeks to provide for regular indexing of the minimum wage each year.
Morgan says indexing the minimum wage will provide security for minimum-wage earners and predictability for business owners.
The change in the minimum wage will be announced on or before June 30 of each year, with that change coming in effect on Oct. 1 of the same year.
