The Fight for 15 and Fairness is a movement across Canada and around the world pushing for a higher minimum wage and stronger workers’ rights for all workers. Within Canada, campaigns for $15 and Fairness have already been successful in Alberta, Ontario, and BC, with the provincial governments promising a gradual wage hike to $15 over the next few years. In Quebec, where they have an active “$15 Plus” campaign, they have won $1.25 more per hour in the last two years. Within that same time period in Nova Scotia, the minimum wage has increased only 30 cents.
Fight for 15 & Fairness Halifax is a local organizing body – comprised of individuals as well as organizations and labour unions – pushing for a $15 minimum wage and stronger workers’ rights in Nova Scotia.
