Dur­ing the pro­vin­cial elec­tion cam­paign in May, the NDP promised to phase in a min­i­mum wage of $15 an hour for gen­eral work­ers. In July, to find out what B.C. res­i­dents think about that, Mus­tel Group asked 300 of them: Should the min­i­mum wage be in­creased to $15 an hour in B.C.? What sur­prised prin­ci­pal Evi Mus­tel was the num­ber of re­spon­dents in favour: 69.4 per cent over­all and 83 per cent in the city of Van­cou­ver. “I think it's be­cause be­cause you have more ser­vice-type jobs in the city,” Mus­tel says.
