If you work for the minimum legal wage in New Brunswick, you’ll be earning 35 cents an hour more today.
The minimum wage is going up to $11 an hour from $10.65 on April 1, which means adjustments for some businesses.
Jake Saunders, co-owner of TrailWay Brewing in Fredericton, said he already pays his bartending staff $11 an hour. Now that they’ll be on par with minimum-wage earners, he may have to discuss a small raise with the other owner of the brewery, he said.
“I do like paying a little bit more than minimum wage,” he said. “I just feel better.”
