Three reasons the minimum wage increase is bad.

As a kid, you might have been taught to work your ass off all day for $20. As an adult, you carried that through a recession, inflation & you’ve used the strong human character to accept circumstances you should blame making a sub-par living for!

Yes, minimum wage raising contributes to rising costs of living, but companies who take more than their share of resources, then pay out little to their communities should take this as a warning.

Employees aren’t talking about their wage to the companies that pay them flat anymore. They are going above their heads to the government to get their fair share!

  1. The absence of workers’ Unions– The government is doing the job for massive corporations that internal workers’ unions should be doing. The minimum wage standards are supposed to be there to regulate the smallest wage, not the absolute wage. Needing to negotiate your wage at the government level opposed to within a company is a feature of socialism, not capitalism. 
  2. College graduates still get paid the same rate as non-qualified persons– Something needs to be done to validate our college programs in Canada. Otherwise, the programs should be eliminated. I strongly advocate for the removal of any media design programs and Television broadcasting programs from college institutions for example. Training for a job should lead to a job. 
  3. Job elimination in small businesses – Don’t exaggerate this too much. I do feel small businesses should have a varying responsibility in wages than massive corporations. That being said unfortunately these companies are paying the price for a problem they are not primarily at fault for. Changing wages & offers does put massive stress on these businesses however that a two-tier wage system might eliminate. 

Listen if you don’t want wages re-negotiated at the government level then here is what needs to happen. We need to bring back internal negotiations for wages in massive companies, We need to manage and eliminate future unnecessary debt in colleges. Lastly, we should hold small businesses less accountable than large businesses for the under waged population. 

To anyone who was against this change employed by a larger organization or a company that serves large organizations. 

Get over it, if your company has over 100 places of business and over a million customers, you can afford to pay employees more than $11.50-$13.00 hourly. Unfortunately, Canadians need real wages to fight inflation (Caused by global markets) Hopefully this will lead to an increase in recreational spending, investing and development.

“I’d rather have a job than a high mandated wage and no job.”

No, you are an idiot! Canada’s market is becoming similar to India with everyone working in Call Center, Tech & grunt work.  To keep up with our neighboring American economy we can’t be India! We have to grow, put money back in working class pockets and rely on proper spending to speed up our economic growth. 

Me personally I would rather not live in a situation where working doesn’t guarantee me a future any better than selling drugs on the street. True story, making an honest living in Telecom in Belleville Ontario I earned less and had a lower quality of living than my neighbor who sold weed.

Final thoughts 

The simple fact is this, Businessphere is equity funded, it is not profitable. It may never be profitable. We use Facebook & Instagram ad space to try & attract clients but we can only do so much at our current income bracket. 

With a change in my external jobs, I can likely grow this project much more and find much more opportunities whilst keeping myself alive. I am still waiting on my big E Commerce account but all I can do is the dream. 

I truly am Happy for the announcemnet of a future wage increase! Thank You Liberal government.
