The Technical Training Group is committed to improving the lives of local people through leading edge technical and skilled trades training. Now, it has also committed publicly to the well-being of its employees and the larger community by certifying as a living wage employer.
“Our goal is to deliver training which provides our trainees with the ability to pursue well-paying and rewarding careers in the skilled trades,” said Technical Training Group Executive Director Cavell Fraser. “It is equally important for us to recognize our staff and their well-being by providing a great working environment and being a living wage employer.”
“We thank the Technical Training Group for certifying,” added United Way Perth-Huron Executive Director Ryan Erb. “Their support of the living wage initiative is an important statement about their commitment to supporting their employees and building a stronger community.”
Based on a 35-hour work week, the living wage in Perth-Huron 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.
