BC’s minimum wage increased 5.4% today

British Columbia is creeping close to that goal of a $15 minimum wage.

Today, the general minimum wage increased 5.4% to $14.60 per hour, which is an increase of $0.75 per hour.

The resident caretaker and live-in camp leader minimum wages also went up 5.4%.

For resident caretakers that manage nine to 60 units, it’s now $876.35 per month, while those who manage 61 or more units now have a minimum wage of $2,985.04 per month.

The liquor server minimum wage had a larger increase, jumping 9.8% from $12.70 per hour to $13.95 per hour.

Today’s increases were the third of four planned bumps to get the minimum wage to $15.

They happen on June 1 each year, starting back in 2018.
