Operation Organize Inc. is committed to supporting seniors in the community and they’ve also made a public commitment to the well-being of their team members by certifying as a Living Wage Employer.
“Seniors have been contributing to our community for decades and deserve to be treated in a respectful manner as they age,” said Operation Organize owner Helen Dowd. “The goal of Operation Organize is to help them stay independent for as long as possible. In the same way, our team members deserve to have their contributions valued and offering a living wage is one way that we can do this.”
“We appreciate Operation Organize for investing in their team members and our community by certifying as a Living Wage Employer,” added United Way Perth-Huron Executive Director Ryan Erb. “Their support is greatly appreciated.”
Based on a 35-hour work week, the Perth-Huron living wage is calculated regularly using local data and takes into account the living expenses of a weighted average of family types including a family of four, a single mother supporting a seven-year-old child and a single adult, once government transfers and deductions are factored in. Everyday expenses in the calculation include housing, food, utilities, childcare and transportation. For more information about Perth-Huron’s living wage, GO HERE.
