The province has finally passed though the $10 dollar mark when it comes to the general minimum wage.
Alberta is the last province to do so with Labour Day Monday the start of the new to $10.20 an hour rate, up from $9.95 an hour.
The increase is based on a formula that looks at the consumer price index, basic inflation and average weekly earnings in Alberta.
However the Canadian Federation of Independent Business is concerned with the 25 cent an hour increase. Richard Truscott says the increase is hard on many businesses.
The liquor server minimum wage will also see an increase, rising from $9.05 to $9.20 per hour. the $1 per hour difference between the two wages is to acknowledge that liquor servers typically earn tips.
About 27 thousand Albertans work for minimum wage.
