CFRA 580: ACORN to protest local MPP over minimum wage

 
Members of the advocacy group ACORN will be protesting outside Ottawa South MPP John Fraser's office Thursday.
 
They're calling on the provincial government to raise the minimum wage from $10.25 an hour to $14 an hour and index it to inflation.
 
ACORN says this will put the minimum wage 10 per cent above the poverty line for someone working 35 hours a week.
 
ACORN members will be serving boxed macaroni and cheese at the rally, to highlight "what minimum wage workers will be eating this Thanksgiving."
