Minimum wage is being bumped up 10 cents an hour as of today (Mon), going from $10.96 an hour to $11.06. It’s the second lowest wage next to Nova Scotia at $11 an hour. Saskatchewan’s neighbouring provinces are also receiving increases today. Alberta’s minimum hourly rate rises to $15, the highest in the country, and Manitoba’s hourly wage increases from $11.10 per hour to $11.35. The Saskatchewan government says an indexation formula has been used to calculate this province’s increases since 2011. Doing the math, if you were to work a 40 hour week, 52 weeks a year, a minimum wage earner in Saskatchewan now makes $23,004.80, an increase of $208 for the whole year.
