ACC Calls for Careful Consideration on Further Minimum Wage IncreasesMarch 11, 2016The Alberta Chambers of Commerce has delivered its Minimum Wage Submission to Alberta Labour Minister Christina Gray. The submission contains results from the ACC's Phase II: Minimum Wage Increase Survey which was conducted in February 2016.
The submission recommends that the Government of Alberta,
- Consider the cumulative costs to businesses of various new policies as well as new economic realities in considering an optimal minimum wage for Alberta;
- Delay any implementation of a minimum wage increase until all options for raising the effective minimum wage for adult minimum wage earners have been explored in consultation with business.
