“A $15 minimum wage would pump billions of dollars into the pockets of low-wage workers and thus the Ontario economy. Jobs would be created as a result and the economic activity would more than compensate for any losses incurred by businesses that can only function on poverty wages. With the minimum wage going up, workers become more valuable to businesses and jobs generally get better. Workers get more training and there is less turnover. Businesses can put more energy into raising efficiency rather than keeping tabs on workers in poverty.”
