Agree or Disagree: Raising Minimum Wage will hurt businesses.

First of all, this is not a write up to claim the NDP is immediately raising the minimum wage to $15.00 an hour. I understand that every intent is raise minimum wage  in increments. 

However, the discussion is still an important topic. Because, the plan is to raise minimum wage.

So, for this, I would like to give two different perspectives.

First, one that has some concerns of raising minimum wage for businesses. You can read that here.

Second, one that is supportive of raising minima wages. This is from Seattle, where they raised minimum wage to $15 an hour. You can read that link here.

Do you Agree or Disagree that raising minimum wage will hurt businesses?

Agree or Disagree: Corporate Taxes.

As you may know, I’ve been sharing some different content from the Alberta Election.

On Agree or Disagree: The Podcast, I have interviewed  Terry Lo of the Alberta Party, Michael Connolly of the NDP, David Khan of the Alberta Liberals. We also chatted with Agatha Smykot and Paul Niewinski about the disenchanted and cynical of the election.

I would also like to discuss some of the big issues in this election. One of them is corporate taxes.

In the Alberta Budget before the election, the PC Party did not raise corporate taxes. This did not please the Alberta Party, NDP or Liberals. You may also have disagreed with it. Or, perhaps you agree with it.

While you are thinking about that, I’ll post this perspective from Mayor Nenshi about if Prentice has held the line of corporate taxes. You can read that here.
