The wage for inexperienced workers — who have less than three months experience under their belts — is increasing to $9.15. “We have carefully considered each of the recent increases in light of the province’s current economic situation and continue to agree with the recommendations that were originally made by the review committee,” said Marilyn More, Minister of Labour and Workforce Development, in a release yesterday.
