Premium

Summary

"In November 2009, the CCPA-Manitoba published its inaugural living wage report, The View From Here: How a living wage can reduce poverty in Manitoba. That report found that the living wage for a two-parent, two-child family was $13.44/hour in Winnipeg, $11.10/hour in Brandon and $11.18/hour in Thompson. ... Since that report, family costs have risen and changes have been made to government taxes and transfers. This short report updates the 2009 calculations"--page [1].
