SASKATCHEWAN WAGE INCREASE ALMOST DOUBLE NATIONAL AVERAGE

“One of the most significant measures of economic progress remains the amount of money people take home on payday,” Economy Minister Bill Boyd said.  “Earnings in Saskatchewan are rising – that’s because there’s more opportunities for better-paying employment.”

In the west, Saskatchewan's earnings were the second highest behind Alberta ($1,113.94) and ahead of British Columbia ($881.23) and Manitoba ($838.54).

“We know that when wages go up, it has a direct impact on other economic indicators like retail sales,” Boyd said.  “This stellar economic growth brings with it many benefits, and one of the most important is the additional money now going to Saskatchewan people.”
