REGINA – Saskatchewan’s labour minister is promising changes to minimum wage legislation before the new year.

Don Morgan’s pledge comes after the NDP yesterday accused the government of unnecessarily delaying a minimum wage index.

Morgan says a formula is being developed and that a policy will be in place before the end of this year.

He also says the usual effective date for minimum wages changes is December 1st.

There are about 22,000 people in Saskatchewan who earn the minimum wage, which currently sits at $10 an hour.
