A Living Wage

Anti-poverty agencies are putting Living Wage theories to the test.

Mission Services of London, Ontario recently announced that all of its employees will earn at least a Living Wage of $15.53/hr.

Part-time Sales Associate, Carol Keep, indicates that receiving an extra $4 an hour has made a huge difference in her life – it means she can help support her children, contribute to household costs and give more to charity.

The United Way in London is currently working to take on the city’s anti-poverty strategy by encouraging employers to pay a Living Wage.

A Living Wage impacts quality of life, helps the economy, increases work production and influences employee retention.
