Do Doug Ford’s tax cuts beat a $15 minimum wage?

Spoilers: No, they don’t!

It turns out that those making less than $30,000/year who would be benefiting from Ford’s proposed income tax cut pay on average only $485 in taxes a year, while the difference between a $14 and $15 wage equates to almost $2,000/year in extra income.

And thats not the only reason why Ford’s tax plan – and his promise to freeze the minimum wage at $14 – doesn’t make sense. Check out this short post from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives’ blog Behind the Numbers for all the details – and don’t stop fighting for $15!
