Another St.Catharines company becomes a living wage employer

St.Catharines has another certified living wage employer.

The Niagara Poverty Reduction Network is announcing Spirit Athletics has joined the ranks of employers offering 17 dollars and 99 cents per hour.

Currently, Ontario's minimum wage is set at $14 - a level the network says falls below what is actually needed to survive in Niagara.

Spirit Athletics opened last year, offering athletic and character development programming including cheerleading and tumbling.

They currently employ six part time staff members.
