Another business has been certified as a living wage employer in Huron and Perth counties.

The United Way of Perth-Huron is recognizing Point Farms Market & Miniature golf as business paying a living wage inside the two counties.

For residents in a dual-income household with two children in Huron and Perth counties, earners must make $17.44 an hour to make ends meet.

In a media release, Point Farms Market owner Colin Carmichael says, "we know that minimum wage encourages minimum effort."

"When paid fairly, our employees have a vested interest in helping us ensure the business is successful and they are as committed to us as we are to them. We have a 100% employee retention rate for four years to prove it."

Woodcock Brothers Transportation Group in Sebringville has also committed to paying a living wage, along with Libro Credit Union in Goderich.
