How Much Do I Pay Workers?

The wages and benefits you pay your workers play a critical role in your business success. By paying your workers a fair wage, you improve your ability to attract and retain the skilled workers you need. That’s important for businesses in any industry, but in agriculture’s highly competitive hiring market, it’s especially critical.

Understanding pay and benefits is also important from a legal standpoint because these matters are governed by federal and provincial legislation. Employers who fail to compensate their workers may face costly lawsuits and fines.
