BC Minimum Wage Increase of 6.9% Leads Will Lead to Unsustainable Costs for Businesses

Today the BC minimum wage will increase from $15.65 to $16.75 an hour, a 6.9 percentage increase.

“We reiterate our statement to say that the Surrey Board of Trade is disappointed that such a significant minimum wage increase is being implemented today on June 1st, leading to further unsustainable cost increases for businesses,” said Anita Huberman, President & CEO, Surrey Board of Trade. “It is imperative that the BC Government focus on reducing costs to businesses by committing to convening a commission to review taxes and red tape impacting businesses.”
