(1113) Living wage Ontario: treat your staff well


A business of any size should be able to realize a benefit in worker behaviour and community image by paying a little more than minimum wage.  That’s the simple (and lovely) idea behind the living wage movement, represented in Ontario by a non-profit advocacy group or two and, it would seem, a small-but-growing number of employers. This can only be a good thing.

No, the beer isn’t free yet, but for Canadians, it’s only fitting that a brewery is among the early adopters of living wages!  Now to get the big players in every sector doing this.  If someone works forty hours a week and is still in poverty something is wrong.
