Minimum wage workers in Manitoba will have more cash in their pockets starting October 1.

The province is raising the minimum wage by 50 cents to $9.50 an hour.

Officials with the province said this increase will help approximately 28,000 Manitobans, many of whom are women and youth.

This latest increase puts Manitoba near the middle of the minimum wage rates among the other Canadian jurisdictions.
