Religious Social Action Coalition Pestering Kathy Dunderdale

Remember this bunch?

They’re still making noises.

Coalition Pushing Government for Minimum Wage Increase 

The Religious Social Action Coalition is pushing the provincial government to increase the minimum wage beyond what has been already announced. The Coalition sent an open letter to Kathy Dunderdale in October, requesting that she consider increasing the minimum wage by 70 cents an hour next month. The government responded with a 25 cent increase in October of next year, but Reverend David Burrows, Coordinator of the RSAC, says that's too little too late.

Hypocrites. Still don’t have a clue about what real poverty is.

Besides, why don't they do some basic research? Fighting poverty by hiking the minimum wage is a very controversial approach, with no proven record of success.
