Ed Canning - Pay equity.

QUESTION: I have not received a raise in four years and I am being paid significantly less than the market rate given my position. Is there a law against this?

ANSWER: No. Unless you are in a union every individual is deemed to strike their own bargain with the employer. You know what you are getting paid when you choose to show up for work every week. Your only power lies in your ability to obtain work elsewhere. They say that those who move out move up. Unless the employer is paying you differently based on your age, gender, or some other human rights ground, there is nothing the law will do for you in these circumstances.
