The Case for A Living Wage

In a new CCPA-Ontario report, Jordan Brennan looks at the history of the minimum wage and living wage in Ontario and makes the case for a living wage as an essential tool to help reduce income inequality. The report, Enhancing Democratic Citizenship, Deepening Distributive Justice: The Living Wage Movement, was written for Ontario's first ever living wage conference, hosted October 11 and 12, 2012 in Toronto by Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives' Ontario office. We'd like to thank our sponsors, Ryerson University's Centre for Labour Management Relations and the Metcalf Foundation, for making this report a reality.
