You Will Now Be Paid More Money To Work In Quebec

Right now the minimum wage is $10.75 an hour, but starting May 1, it will go up 10 $11.25.

It might not sound like much, but 50¢ is still $20 more a week if you're working 40 hours a week. That adds up to about $1,040 a year before taxes. Not too bad when you think about it. Especially considering last time it went up by only 20¢

The announcement was made this morning at the national assembly by the employment minister.
