Living Wage Waterloo Region Launches Living Wage Employer Recognition Program

The Living wage Movement Grows in Waterloo Region

Brayden McNeill, Grand River Media Collective

Living Wage Waterloo Region (LWWR) launched its Employer Recognition Program on Tuesday November 4th, commending ten local companies for their progressive wage schemes. LWWR is a local initiative to calculate a living wage for our region and to lobby employers to adapt their pay scales accordingly.

The living wage for our region of $16 per hour was determined with the help of the Canadian Center for Policy Alternatives. It’s based on the needs of a typical family of four, with two parents working full time hours. Calculated using actual costs for public transit, childcare and rent in the Region of Waterloo, the wage is the minimal amount needed for a family to live a comfortable life.

Special Edition: Remembrance Day Anti-War Music Hour

Today has become a celebration of military force and propaganda for racist, imperial wars waged by western countries who are willing to commit atrocities for more political power or natural resources that are not theirs to take. This show will instead honour of those who are against the war, particularly after having served in one (or more) themselves, and all those who return alive only to be denied the support they need by the very government who sent them to kill people in other parts of the world.
