Farm workers in British Columbia are getting a pay raise.
The province stated that the increase is the same rate made to the general minimum wage back in June, and the last increase to piece rates was done in September 2017.
15 different crops are covered by piece rates, including apples, green beans, and mushrooms.
A report is also being put together by the Fair Wages Commission, in order to ensure that farmworker compensation is sustainable for farmers and fair to the workers.
