Manitoba’s Minimum Wage Going Up October 1

Minimum wage in Manitoba will go up to $10.25 on October 1.

The increase is a 25-cent hike as outlined in the province’s 2012 budget.

“We continue to boost the purchasing power of minimum-wage earners and this move can also benefit business as it helps attract and keep workers,” Family Services and Labour Minister Jennifer Howard said in a release.

“We have one of the most robust labour markets in the country, revenues continue to rise in many sectors, including restaurant and retail, and increasing the minimum wage has not hurt employment.”
