Poverty Photo Exhibit Runs In Blyth

Blyth | by Fadi Didi  

Exhibit by Social Research & Planning Council shows life below the poverty line.

The United Way of Perth-Huron's Social Research & Planning Council will be giving visitors of Blyth a look into life of those making less than a living wage.

The SRPC is hosting a photo exhibit starting Wednesday, detailing the day-to-day lives of those who live on less than what is needed.

SRPC Director Susanna Reid the exhibit looks to engage locals in a more direct way than a report.

In Huron County, the living way for a full-time, dual-income household is $16.47 an hour.

Reid says the exhibit will run at the Blyth Festival Art Gallery until November 11th, through the first week of Living Wage Week.
