“I remember getting paid $4 an hour washing dishes”
- Helmi Ansari
Helmi Ansari is not a low-paid worker today. In fact, he is co-owner of Grosche International, a Cambridge, Ontario company. His personal experience helped underline the value Grosche places on creating good work that pays a living wage. Grosche is one of twenty organizations that signed on to pay all of their employees a living wage in the first year of the Living Wage Employer Program in Waterloo Region. MCC Ontario is proud to be one of those organizations and to have helped launch Living Wage Waterloo Region. In that first year, more than eighty (80) workers saw a pay increase as a result of the Living Wage Employer Program.
