What is the Living Wage?
The living wage is a locally calculated, peer-reviewed hourly rate of pay at which individuals and families can live. It is not the same as minimum wage, which is mandated provincially. It is a wage that employers pay voluntarily because it is not only beneficial to both employers and employees, but the entire community.
