Step in right pay direction

Editor, The News:

Re: Minimum wage climbs above $10 (The News, March 18).

I was pleased to read how the B.C. minimum wage issue is finally being addressed.

After dealing with Gordon Campbell and his politicians in government sessions putting their snouts in the public trough and ignoring the 250,000 B.C. residents getting the minimum rates of pay for more than 10 years, this is a step in the right direction.

Now the six million dollar question is: What Liberal wrong are you going to right next?’
