Alberta15: We Pay Fair

A place for employers in Alberta to proudly proclaim that they pay a living wage* to their employees so Albertans that care can support people who build and support our province. In today's announcement (May 27, 2019) from Premier Kenney, we heard that not all minimum wage work hours are valued and that employees should negotiate their value for wages and overtime with the same people that can cut hours or terminate employment (hardly a fair negotiation).

*A living wage varies greatly depending on where in Alberta one lives. $15 covers a large part of the province, but certainly not the major centres. This site is focused on ensuring the minimum wage of $15 per hour applies to all employees regardless of age, but you can see what the actual living wage in your area is by going here: http://www.livingwagecanada.ca/index.php/living-wage-communities/alberta/

Our government's announcement on May 27 impacts people  that can afford it least. While Mr. Kenney claims it "allows" employees a chance to negotiate staying past the regular overtime hours to earn more tips, we know that employers will abuse this to keep minimum wage employees working without fair recompense. Young employees deserve to make the same wage as those over 18 and should not be asked to negotiate for a living because they are students. Employers that hire people should hire based on the job being viable, period.

Today, we invite all employers in this great province that care about all workers to stand up and be counted as an "Alberta15" company. You have customers waiting to support you for contributing back to this fine province. Stand up an be counted.

The List

This is a list of employers that have self-professed to pay a living wage in Alberta to all employees regardless of Premier Kenney's roll-backs or other loopholes. We encourage you to do your own research, but this should serve as a good jumping-off point for places you can support if you believe that ALL Albertans should make a living wage for 40 hours of work per week.
