What is a Living Wage?
The Fraser Valley Living Wage is $17.02/hour
Living Wage is the basic hourly wage required for a family of four with both parents working full-time year-round to meet basic needs and maintain a decent standard of living. Based on the actual costs of living in a given community, Living Wage provides a basic level of economic security, but still represents a conservative, bare bones budget. The Fraser Valley’s Living Wage was calculated based on the premise of social and economic inclusion for all.
