Premier Kathleen Wynne attended a round-table discussion on poverty reduction in Peterborough on Wednesday afternoon, where she talked about how a minimum wage increase to $15 an hour will help many Ontario families manage.

Many people are working for minimum wage at service jobs, she said at the discussion in the chapel at The Mount Community Centre on Monaghan Road.

These working people struggle to put food on the table, Wynne said.

“They should be able to feed themselves and their families,” she said. “That’s why we’re raising the minimum wage.”
