Workers in Prince Edward Island making minimum wage are about to get another raise.
On October 1, the minimum wage will go up to $10.35 an hour. This will be the second increase this year. On June 1, the wage increased from $10 an hour to $10.20.
The raises were announced in the spring by labour minister Janice Sherry.
In New Brunswick, the minimum wage is $10 an hour. In Nova Scotia, it’s $9.90 for inexperienced workers, and $10.40 for experienced ones. In Newfoundland and Labrador, the rate will be $10.25 this October.
The last increase to the minimum wage on P.E.I. was two years ago.
The Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce is critical of the move, saying business owners weren’t given enough notice about the increases. It suggests announcing increases at a fixed date each year.
Meanwhile, P.E.I.’s Employment Standards Board will soon be conducting another annual review of the province’s minimum wage.
It’s accepting written submissions until October 22nd.
***URGENT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT***
Grindr, a popular app for gay men, now carries an urgent warning for users in Egypt. According to many sources, Egyptian authorities are posing as LGBT people on various social media sites to identify and arrest homosexual people. The app is urging users in the region to proceed with extreme caution, especially when identifying themselves or arranging meetings/hookups. While so far the focus seems to be on gay men, all LGBT people in the area should be cautious. Reports show that Egyptian police have carried out violent raids on private homes which lead to the arrests of several gay men. These men were then subjected to disturbing medical “exams.” Police also raided an LGBT party last year, violently arresting many and sentencing them to up to 12 years hard labour. While homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, athorities are using sexual deviance, debauchery and insulting public morals as terms for the crackdown. Many claim this fresh attack on the LGBT community is lead by President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi who wishes for his country to be more Islamic.
For all of my LGBT friends here on tumblr, please be extremely careful as this situation develops. Remember to clear your search history, use private browsing if possible, and be extremely cautious with who you talk to online.
