This pisses me off
So when i work i read the paper. I stumbke across an article titled “UCP leadership candidate calls for big minimum wage rollback on Alberta”
I go “okay what”
Basically UCP (United Conservative Party) leader candidate Doug Schweitzer wants to deny the 15 min wage the NDP promised for 2019 amd keep it at 12.20
“We need to make Alberta the most competitive business environment in Canada and repel the NDP’s $15/hour minimum wage- it is out of touch and just isn’t going to work for Alberta,” said Schweitzer, a Calgary lawyer. (DIRECT QUOTE FROM THE ARTICLE)
Like honestly most people work like 30 hours a week if they’re lucky at one job. On the new wage NDP promised, that’s $450/week, roughly $1800/month, and $23400/52 weeks (roughly 1 year)
Now, what does $12.20/hour give us? $366/week, $1464/month, and $19032/52 weeks (roughly 1 year). That is an overall difference of $84/week, $336/week, and a total difference of $4368/52 weeks.
Look at all that money that could really fucking help people out!!!!!
I am so mad at this asshole!!!!
