Higher Minimum Wage, 10 Sick Days Paid, If Wins Elections: Liberal Party

The policies included a promise for higher minimum wage, more paid sick days, and the policies were named as a “plan for economic dignity.”

The Ontario Liberal Party leader Steven Del Duca released a major plank of his party for the 2022 elections in an event in Toronto.

The policies included a promise for higher minimum wage, more paid sick days, and the policies were named as a “plan for economic dignity.”

The party leader announced the plan at its first in-person event of 2022.

Del Duca promised to raise the minimum wage to $16 per hour from Jan. 2023, if he becomes the premier.

He said that their party will immediately build a wage structure that will reflect the living conditions and expenses of Ontario.

The wages would be regionally adjusted and could be up to $22 per hour for regions like Toronto, the advocates said.

Ontario’s conservative government increased the minimum wage from $14.35 per hour to $15 per hour and raised the minimum wage for liquor servers from $12.55 per hour to $15 per hour.
A minimum wage of $16 as of Oct. 1 has also been promised by the NDP, to raise it to $20 an hour by 2026.

“I believe that economic dignity is far too important to be left to luck,” said Del Duca.

The party also announced 10 sick day leaves for Ontario workers.

The Party said that it is looking to experiment with a four-day work-week plan in Ontario as it would improve the work-life balance and quality of life of Ontario residents.
