I know from my powers as a prairie dog blog administrator that James will soon post a Top Six in the Morning that mentions a SFL request that the minimum wage be indexed to 75 per cent of the average industrial wage or slightly more than $15 an hour.

To put that outrageous (in the minds of right wing Cons, anyway) suggestion in perspective, here’s a link to a feature Maclean’s magazine did last year that charts the expontential growth in CEO salaries in Canada over the last 12 years.

 Topping the list in 2007 was Research in Motion CEO Michael Lazaridis (pictured) at over $51 million. Nice.
