Join Us! HMSHost Local 40 members to call for $15 minimum wage

What:     Fair Wages Commission

When:    Thursday, November 23, 2017

Time:      5:00 PM

Where:   Hyatt Regency, 655 Burrard Street

Our city is becoming more and more unaffordable by the day.  We need a $15 minimum wage!  The new provincial government has launched the Fair Wages Commission to hear directly from us at public consultations throughout BC.

This Thursday, the Commission will be coming to Vancouver and Local 40 members will be there!

YVR airport members from HMS Host will tell the panel how urgently we need to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour so that more working people can make ends meet and support their families.

We want the public to know that there is no place for minimum wage jobs at YVR or any workplace in BC.  The price of housing, gas, food and other necessities keeps going up, but starting wages are too low to keep pace.

Join us this Thursday to support your co-workers from HMSHost! Send a note to and let us know you’ll be there.

We want to send a strong message to the provincial government that the time to increase the minimum wage to $15 is now!
