Minimum wage is the lowest amount an employer can pay a worker. If you’re a worker in BC, we’ve got key things to know about earning the minimum wage.
What you should know
There’s a law in BC that requires employers to pay their workers at least the minimum wage. This law applies to most workers in the province, but not all. For example, independent contractors aren’t covered. Nor are babysitters, or people working in certain licensed professions.
Workers who aren’t covered aren’t entitled to the minimum wage set by the law.
