Become a Living Wage Champion
The concept of a living wage is bigger than just income. It’s about quality of life. It’s about ensuring that our neighbours can afford to pay their rent and buy nutritious food. It’s about ensuring that employees are healthy and able to pay for transportation to get to and from work every day. It’s about ensuring that our children receive sufficient social and education opportunities to help them flourish.
