Requests for Proposals for the next SRPC research project: How much is enough? Impact of Low Incomes on Households and Communities in Huron and Perth Counties
In 2015, the SRPC calculated a “living wage” for Huron and Perth County as $16.47 an hour. To continue the discussion, the SRPC is now commissioning research to consider the impact on households and communities of not having a living wage/income. The research will also consider the experience and role of employers.
RFPs are being accepted until Friday March 2 at 5 pm.
