The Vancouver Airport Authority has implemented a Living Wage. Y not YYZ? #YnotYYZ
Workers at Canada’s largest workplace Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) don’t need a new federal minimum wage of $16.65/hr. on April 1st. They need a Living Wage, as it is impossibly expensive to live anywhere even remotely close to YYZ at $16.65/hr.
A full time workers take home pay should not represent close to 100% or more of their housing costs!
A recent CP 24 news release indicates people need an income of $200,000 per year to break into the Toronto Area housing market.
The Vancouver Airport Authority recently introduced a Living Wage for thousands of workers at YVR, so Y not YYZ? Is Toronto not just as expensive to live?
Please sign this petition to tell the Greater Toronto Airport Authority (GTAA) and our politicians that workers at Toronto Pearson YYZ deserve a Living Wage much like other airports in North America have implemented.
