City looking at fair wage policy for all of its workers

WINNIPEG -- Winnipeg’s Executive Policy Committee is taking another look at how much it would cost to provide all city workers with a living wage.
The committee is asking the public service to report back on the cost of implementing a fair wage policy within 60 days. If approved, that would mean all City of Winnipeg employees would make a minimum of $15 an hour.
A report presented Tuesday found 87 per cent of employees currently make that amount or more.
Coun. Scott Gillingham was the lone member opposed to the motion.
