In three of the world’s richest countries, average real wages are lower today than they were in 2010.
In April, the City of New Westminster became the first Canadian city to adopt a Living Wage policy. A living wage is a minimum hourly wage that is supposed to be pegged to the level at which a household can meet its basic needs. All city employees and the employees of businesses that contract with the city to provide services must be paid at least this living wage.
