Ontario’s minimum wage frozen too long

Okay about a month too late but whatever. For anyone who has lived in say Toronto you would know just how hard it is to pay the rent at a $14 a hour job never mind $10 something a hour. In a city where 1 bedroom apartments go for $800 a month + even in the worst areas $10 would not leave you with enough money to feed yourself hardly let alone if you had kids. I just hope they can manage to get the $14 a hour minimum wage because that is wage slavery enough where as $10 a hour is plain old slavery.

Does anyone here from Ontario know the odd's of the people getting what they want here or is it like talking to a brick wall when it comes to the current government?
