New Brunswick Minimum Wage
April 1 2017 - New Brunswick's minimum wage will increase from $10.65 per hour to $11 per hour on April 1.
Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour Minister Donald Arseneault commented:
"Helping families is one of our government’s priorities.Increasing the minimum wage will put more money in the pockets of hard-working New Brunswickers and have
a positive effect on the provincial economy, so families can continue to live and work here in New Brunswick."
This is the third increase to New Brunswick’s minimum wage since December 2014 and honours a commitment made under the government’s poverty reduction plan.
Donald Arseneault cadded:
"Raising the minimum wage will increase the income of the lowest-paid workers, enhance social equality, and help the most vulnerable in our province.
The increase will also strengthen and stimulate the economy, which will benefit small businesses in all regions of the province."
