A 32% increase in the minimum wage is not sitting well with our M.P.P.

Haliburton-Kawartha-Lakes-Brock M.P.P. Laurie Scott says job creation would be more beneficial.

The minimum wage would increase to $14 an hour next year, and then to $15 in 2019.

Scott is worried business owners will cut back hours to compensate for the increase.

Scott supports an increase to the minimum wage, but feels such a large bump is too drastic.
