Wages dropping while costs and unemployment rise in Ontario

Kitchener/Waterloo - New data shows that wages for Ontarians are dropping while the cost of living goes up, with full-time working women and young workers taking the hardest hit on their paycheques.

According to Statistics Canada’s Labour Force Survey for July, the median weekly wage in Ontario was down $15.20 compared to the month before, a decline nearly double the decline seen nationally.

Hardest hit were young workers, whose median weekly wages were cut $40 per week in July; and full-time working women, whose median weekly wages were down $24.80 compared to a month earlier.

Regions that have lost jobs over the last 12 months include Brantford (down 2,200 jobs), Windsor (down 6,700 jobs) and Sudbury (down 400 jobs).
