What proportion of students and young people active in the Alberta work force earn $15/hour or less?


While the majority of low-wage workers in Alberta are NOT young and NOT students, if you happen to be a young worker or a student who is also holding down a job, you are MUCH more likely to be paid low wages than other Albertans. Thirty-seven per cent of Alberta workers between the ages of 15 and 24 earn $15 per hour or less and a whopping 56 per cent of students with jobs fall into the same category.
