New Brunswick is raising its minimum wage by 10 cents an hour on Jan. 1, 2005, to $6.30 an hour.

Margaret-Ann Blaney, the province’s training and employment development minister, said the increase is the second installment of New Brunswick’s commitment to raise the minimum wage by 10 per cent.

“This will benefit thousands of New Brunswickers and continues our phased-in approach to increase the minimum wage to $6.60 per hour during our current mandate,” said Blaney.
