The 15 Is Fair campaign was created by the Alberta Federation of Labour to encourage our provincial government to follow through on promises to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2018. The minimum wage became $15 on October 1, 2018 thanks to the NDP government, but the new UCP government is now rolling back the wage to $13 for youth workers (15-17 year-olds). We think this is discriminatory policy that undermines the minimum wage and allows employers to take advantage of vulnerable workers.
For more than 30 years, the AFL has advocated for fair wages, and for a minimum wage that reflects the true cost of living in the province. All workers deserve a living wage.
