4. Minimum wage hike does not kill jobs: report - October 20
(Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives)

Minimum wage hike does not kill jobs: report
Raise does not boost the jobless rate, according to a study by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.
http://www.thestar.com/business/2014/10/20/minimum_wage_hike_does_not_kill_jobs_report.html
By Madhavi Acharya-Tom Yew
October 20, 2014
Increasing the minimum wage does not result in higher rates of unemployment, according to a study released Tuesday by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.
Instead, the report found, employment levels are largely driven by purchasing power in the economy.

The Abstract:
https://www.policyalternatives.ca/publications/reports/dispelling-minimum-wage-mythology
By Jordan Brennan Jim Stanford
October 21, 2014

The complete study: (PDF - 697K, 26 pages)
https://www.policyalternatives.ca/sites/default/files/uploads/publications/National%20Office/2014/10/Dispelling_Minimum_Wage_Mythology.pdf
October 2014
This report conducts a wide empirical study of Canadian employment data in search of any evidence that higher minimum wages reduce employment or increase unemployment. It examines the relationship between minimum wages and employment in all ten Canadian provinces between 1983 and 2012, and finds no consistent evidence that minimum wage levels affect employment in either direction. Instead, the research concludes that employment levels are overwhelmingly determined by larger macroeconomic factors.

Children's rights Wiki - from CRIN
http://wiki.crin.org/mediawiki/index.php
The Children's Rights Wiki assembles all information about children's rights in every country in one place. The purpose of the project is to make the huge volume of information that exists on children's rights more accessible, assist children's rights advocates in identifying persistent violations, and inspire collective action. This is a web-based, multi-lingual and interactive project.
