Campaign For Higher Minimum Wage Continues

Students rallied at Queen's Park Wednesday in a call for a $14.00 an hour minimum wage in Ontario.
The wage goes to $11.00 June 1, but students under the age of 18 will only see their wages rise to $10.30.
Spokesperson with the group Campaign to Raise the Minimum Wage, Denise Martins, says young workers are frustrated with their prospects and want decent wages and the same opportunities for good jobs as others.
