Minimum wage workers in Manitoba will have a little more jingle to their jangle beginning Monday.

The province is increasing the minimum wage by 20 cents per hour to $11.35 as of October 1.

Growth, Enterprise and Trade Minister Blaine Pedersen says the increase is indexed with the rate of inflation in a “predictable and sustainable way.”

This adjustment is based on Manitoba’s 2017 inflation rate of 1.6 percent and rounding up to the nearest five cents.
