Tell the politicians no more delays!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – ‘We Are Oshawa’ Group Demands $14 Minimum Wage

A local group of concerned citizens, under the banner We Are Oshawa, are joining folks from across Ontario for a Day of Action to raise the minimum wage to $14. This time they are making a stop at Christine Elliott’s constituency office, Progressive Conservative MPP for Whitby-Oshawa.  We Are Oshawa is a group of concerned citizens organizing on a broad-range of local, provincial, and federal issues. The group will be debut “Minimum Wage Monopoly” street theatre outside Elliott’s constituency office.

The Liberal government has recently announced they will strike a long-awaited panel on minimum wage. We need to let our local MPPs know that low-wage workers have already waited 3 years for a raise! We can’t wait any longer – tell your MPP it’s time for action!

Concerned citizens will gather on the 14th of every month at 1400 hrs (2pm), at the constituency offices of Durham Region MPPs. On September 14th, we will gather at Joe Dickson’s office, Liberal MPP for Ajax-Pickering.
