Huron County's Chief Administrative Officer is sympathetic to the Social Research and Planning Council's "living wage" message.
SRPC officials this week appeared before County Council, as part of its campaign to share details of the living wage with County and municipal Councils across Huron and Perth.
They peg the living wage at $17.44 per hour, based on a family of four in which both parents work full-time at 35 hours a week.
County CAO Meighan Wark says the concept is worth researching the SRPC's ideas and current wages earned by County employees.
She says staff can look at the factors involved in the living wage set out in the SRPC presentation, then report to Council.
Wark cautions that a final decision on whether or not to adopt the SRPC benchmark would come in a Council vote.
