The province will be introducing legislation on Tuesday to regulate minimum wage hikes, tying them to inflation.  

Last month, the premier announced the new minimum wage will be $11 an hour as of June 1st - up 75 cents. 

The proposed bill would outline giving businesses a four-month heads up on April 1st of a year for a hike which will be implemented in October. 

This year's dollar-change does not need to be voted on, but the proses as moving forward does. 

The 2014 hike builds on inflation of the last four years, when the minimum wage was frozen in 2010.

This comes after a panel released its recommendations on the matter. 

Special interest groups continue to call on the province to bump minimum wage to $14 and hour, in order to get workers over the poverty line.
