What does it mean to be a Living Wage Employer?
This means we are committed to paying our employees a living wage that allows them to meet their basic needs and participate in their communities. A living wage is different from minimum wage in that minimum wage is mandatory and the same throughout the province, while a living wage reflects what people need to cover the actual costs of living in their communities. Payment of a living wage is a voluntary commitment from employers to go beyond the minimum. By becoming a Living Wage Employer, CarePros is committed to ensuring all its direct employees in Alberta have enough money to live on.
CarePros is not the only one. A growing number of Alberta businesses committed to a living wage for employees. At CarePros we believe that this is an important initiative for Alberta businesses to look after their employees.
It is important to pay a fair living wage because it helps to ensure that all workers can afford to live basic lives with dignity. It also helps to reduce poverty and allows people to have more money to spend in the local economy. Paying a living wage can have a positive impact on employee health, increasing morale and reducing turnover.
