More than 140 employers across British Columbia have become Living Wage Employers. This includes small and large for-profit companies, unions, cooperatives, non-profits, eight local governments and one school district. These employers have committed to paying all their direct staff and contract employees a living wage, and to require that any major service providers also pay a living wage to their staff.
In this webinar specifically for local government staff and elected officials, you'll learn about the process of becoming a Living Wage Employer. Presenters will explain what the living wage is and how it's calculated, what steps a local government needs to take to research and prepare a living wage plan, and what lessons you can learn from other local governments that are already Living Wage Employers.
