"Being a living wage employer isn't just about paying employees enough to get by - it's about empowering them to thrive. When we invest in our people, we invest in a brighter future for our company, our community, and our world. Most of our cleaners are supporting their own families while taking care of other families' homes. I know our clients appreciate our cleaners earning enough to focus on their job and be happy rather than constantly looking for other jobs to make ends meet." Yeonsil Kang, CEO & Founder
As the cost of living has increased across BC, the importance of paying a living wage has never been more important. The living wage is the hourly amount someone needs to earn to pay for basic essentials like food and rent, it doesn’t include paying off debt or saving for retirement. The Living Wage for Metro-Vancouver is currently $24.08 an hour.
“We’re delighted that Home Spritz are a Living Wage Employer. Cleaning is typically a very low paid industry, and so it's great to see organizations like Home Spritz step up and pay their workers a Living Wage. We hope it inspires other employers join the Living Wage movement. Paying a living wage is good for workers, employers, and the local community” said Anastasia French, Living Wage for Families BC.
There are now almost 400 Living Wage Employers across BC.
