The minimum wage in P.E.I. is currently $12.8, which is absurdly high for minimal entry jobs.
During the Covid-19 pandemic,
The study released Money, estimated that a family of four would only need two parents each earning $10.36 for a decent quality of life. The minimum wage in P.E.I. is currently $12.80. That's the highest in the region, but still nearly 3 dollars higher than the study's figure.
"The minimum wage is far too high," said Business Owner Mike Campell.
"Jobs that take little to no prior experience, education, or training are being rewarded with an outrageously high wage that is hard for small and large businesses to pay while maintaining other aspects of expense."
Campbell ended with; "The bureaucrats that make these laws are so painfully uneducated in how businesses operate."
