The city of Port Colborne considering becoming one of Niagara's 'Living Wage Employers'
A motion will be coming to Port Colborne council looking at making the city one of Niagara's certified "Living Wage Employers."
The designation requires that business pay all employees $18/hr.
CAO Scott Luey says they are still in the early stages of discussion after the idea was introduced at council this week.
Luey says that means they need to ensure all workers, even contract workers for the city, must make that wage.
Most full-time employees make more than 18 dollars an hour -- the average salary for a city worker is 73-thousand dollars a year.
