Advocacy in Action
The BC Government announced today a 6.9% increase to the minimum wage effective June 1.
“While our Chamber understands the need to increase the wage of the lowest paid workers in our communities to help with the rising cost of living, this is yet again another increase to the cost of doing business. And it comes at a time when many businesses are struggling to survive and recover in these challenging economic times,” said Leslie Courchesne, CEO of the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce.
The Tri-Cities Chamber is pleased to see a number of items in this year’s budget, including a national supply chain strategy, investments to address the labour shortage, and lowering of credit card fees paid by small business.
The Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce has co-signed a letter urging Pete Buttigieg, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation to support funding to develop the vision for this significant, multi-jurisdictional infrastructure project.
