Anyone earning minimum wage in B.C. will receive a small boost on their next pay check.

The hourly rate is rising from $10.45 per hour to $10.85 per hour, while the minimum wage for liquor servers will also rise 40 cents to $9.60.

Live-in home support workers, camp leaders, residential caretakers and crop harvesters are also getting a minimum wage hike today.

And next in September the rate will go up again, to at least $11.25 an hour.

The province announced the increases in May, saying the new numbers reflect B.C’s economic growth.
