The South Okanagan Boundary Labour Council is hosting a discussion about making $15 an hour the minimum wage in BC. As you know, both the BC FED and the Federal NDP have announced official campaigns that include a $15 an hour as a minimum wage for working people.
The two hour discussion will take place on Friday May 1st (May Day) from 6:30pm to 8:30 p.m. at Leir House, 220 Manor Park Ave, Penticton.
Special guests include Aaron Ekman, Sec Treas of the BC Federation of Labour, Richard Cannings, Federal NDP Candidate for the South Okanagan West Kootenay riding and Angelique Wood, Federal NDP Candidate for the Central Okanagan Similkameen-Nicola riding.
This discussion will be a good lead-up to SOBLC’s May Day event the next day, Saturday May 2nd, at Gyro Park Bandshell (10 am to 2 pm).
Let’s make these events successful with your participation.
