Saskatchew­an’s Min­i­mum Wage in­creas­ing by a dime in Oc­to­ber

The Southwest Booster - - REAL ESTATE - SUB­MIT­TED

The min­i­mum wage in Saskatchew­an will in­crease to $11.06 an hour from $10.96 an hour on Oc­to­ber 1, 2018.

The in­crease is the 10th since the Saskatchew­an Party gov­ern­ment took of­fice. An in­dex­a­tion for­mula has been used to cal­cu­late in­creases in the min­i­mum wage since 2011.

The prov­ince also con­tin­ues to have a low per­sonal in­come tax rate, en­sur­ing low in­come earn­ers, in­clud­ing min­i­mum wage earn­ers, keep more of their money.

Saskatchew­an’s leg­is­la­tion pro­vides for an an­nual re­view based on changes to the Con­sumer Price In­dex and the av­er­age hourly wage for the pre­vi­ous year. Any changes to the min­i­mum wage are to be an­nounced by June 30. Changes take ef­fect Oc­to­ber 1.
