The Ontario government has announced changes to the Employment Standards Act, and minimum wage over the next 18 months.

Reaction has blown up all over social and traditional media. There has been so much said that it is easy to become confused as to what is real. Are these changes going to be good or bad for the economy?

One thing is clear to me, both sides have to come together and make this work. There is no way anyone can make ends meet on poverty wages of $11.40 or $11.60 per hour as it will be come October.
