The Board members of the Huron Chamber of Commerce recently had a presentation from Ryan Erb of   United Way Perth Huron  on the topic of certification as a Living Wage Employer. This is a free certification that businesses can receive, and it will enhance your attraction as an employer in what is a tight labour market, as well create a benefit as a socially responsible employer.

A  Living Wage  is defined as “the hourly wage a worker needs  to earn to cover his/her family’s  basic everyday expenses, such as  food, housing, utilities, childcare,  and transportation.”
