  1. Pam Franche makes an interesting statement that the $15 figure came from workers themselves who felt they would fight for that but they didn’t believe a living wage of $20 was something they could achieve. $15 American is $19.49 Canadian. I wish Franche could have illustrated how the decision was made… by polls? by informal discussions?
