VICTORIA, B.C. – Premier John Horgan held a press conference, Wednesday, regarding the ongoing COVID-19 situation in British Columbia.

Horgan says he has heard a range of issues from businesses, including an increase in the minimum wage.

Horgan feels low-income workers should not bear the financial strain due to the COVID-19 pandemic and that is why the Province has introduced, as of June 1, an increase for the minimum wage to $14.60 per hour, with the goal of making the minimum wage $15.20 per hour by June 2021.
