Fair Wages Commission to holding hearing in Prince George

The commission will hold hearings at the Coast Inn of the North on May 13.

A living wage is defined as the hourly rate at which a household can meet its basic needs based on the actual costs of living in a specific community and is generally higher than the legislated minimum wage set by the provincial government.

Anyone wishing to present their views in person to the commission is asked to book a time in advance by emailing FWC@gov.bc.ca. All meetings will be open to the public.

Written feedback can also be provided through the same email.
