Le Front de défense des non-syndiquéEs

FDNS

WHAT IS THE FDNS ?

The Non Unionize Defense Front (FDNS) is a coalition that includes more than 25 different popular and union groups whose main objective is the improvement of the living and working conditions of those non-unionized. This organism currently leads a huge campaign to increase the minimum wage in Quebec.

Minimum wage paid workers characteristics:

Nowadays in Quebec a person who earns the minimum wage gets $10.35 per hour or $8,90 if she receives a tip.

According to Statistics Canada, in 2005, there were 148 000 workers in Quebec being paid the minimum wage. Out of these, almost…

WHO DECIDES THE MINIMUM WAGE RATE?

The government decides the minimum wage increases. It should aim to get these people out of poverty, and consequently, increase the minimum wage significantly, not only marginally. It is his responsibility!

Around 60% are full time workers.

Women and 40%

The weakness of the minimum wage rate has repeatedly been criticized as an obstacle to getting out of poverty. In May 2006 UN´s Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, noted with concern in its report that the minimum wage in Quebec was below the low income cut-and he urged the State to correct that.

The minimum wage is an essential labour regulation and a key element on the fight against poverty.

WHAT THE FDNS DEMANDS

A decent minimum wage !

For this reason, the Non Unionize Defense Front (FDNS) asked the Quebec government to increase the minimum wage for a person working 40 hours per week so they will have an annual income equivalent to the low income threshold before tax , established by Statistics Canada for a single person. The minimum wage in 2007 should reach $ 10.16 per hour. At the present time, to reach the low-income threshold, a person must work at least 51 hours per week!

Help the working poor who, even working 40 hours per week fails to reach the low income threshold. Sign the NUDF petition to increase the minimum wage!

When a X$ wage per hour is not enough to get out of poverty…

Any questions?
