Niagara introducing another certified living wage employer

Living Wage

Marmax Machine & Manufacturing is a family owned and operated steel processing facility based out of Thorold.

They are the latest company in the region to become a certified living wage employer.

Office Administrator Maura Blair says they've actually been paying a living wage since they hired their first employee back in 2007.

Maramax Machine & Manufacturing currently employs ten full time and one part time staff. 

A living wage reflects what earners need to be paid based on the actual costs of living and being included in the community. The 2018 living wage for Niagara region has been calculated to be $17.99/hour.
