Niagara is celebrating its ninth Certified Living Wage Employer.

The Niagara Poverty Reduction Network presented Niagara Pallets with a certificate yesterday.

The group says a living wage is different from minimum wage, since it’s based on the actual cost of living in a specific area.

In Niagara, the living wage for 2018 was about 18 dollars an hour.

Certified employers pay all direct and indirect employees a living wage based on their region.

Other living wage employers in Niagara include Women’s Place of South Niagara, Pen Financial Credit Union and Niagara Falls Community Health Centre.
