“The minimum wage on P.E.I. would come up well short of providing a family in Charlottetown with a living wage, a report from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives concludes.
The study, released Monday, estimated that a family of four would need two parents each earning $19.30 an hour for a decent quality of life. The current minimum wage on P.E.I. is $12.85. That’s the highest in the region, but still more than $6 short of what the centre’s report found was needed.”
