Some Calgary residents living on minimum wage are finding it difficult to make ends meet according to this CBC Calgary article. Meaghon Reid says many people living on low wages are forced to work several jobs.
"I would encourage people when they're going to the supermarket or the drive-through or other places, where they would anticipate minimum wage workers, to actually take notice.
