How many low-wage workers in Alberta are parents?

A:

Of the over 300,000 Albertans earning less than $15 per hour, 60,000 (or 18 per cent) have at least one child under the age of 18. For many of these people, low wages are not just a “poverty sentence” for themselves – they’re a sentence for their children and families, as well.
