‘Try living on it’: Toronto workers protest minimum wage

When Chavenne Stamp realized she could not afford to hire a face painter for a children’s party, she got a paint kit and gave it a go. Stamp, 26, is raising her two children on a $12 an hour wage. She got the pay raise barely six months ago when she left her job working at a big-box retail store where she earned $10.25 per hour, Ontario’s minimum wage.
