Minimum wage not going up right now: Premier
Wynne says she's waiting on panel recommendations
6 0

Last week, health care providers urged the province to bump Ontario's minimum wage up 4 dollars, from it's current $10.25. Monday, the premier struck down that suggestion.

After acknowledging calls for a $14 dollar per hour minimum wage, Kathleen Wynne says that's not going to happen in one fell swoop right now.

However, Wynne says a panel the province has set up to examine minimum wage is still at work. She says they're trying to figure out the best plan to have a systematic way of approaching increases.

Wynne underlines she doesn't want increases to be a political whim.
