Fair Wage Policy discussed

The City of Thunder Bay is set to receive a report on a fair wage policy for road, bridge, and sewer and water contracts.Administration is bringing a study on the matter to council Monday night. City Spokesperson Dan Munshaw says they don't really have a use for the fair wage policy, since mostly local businesses have won city contracts. The study shows from 2008 to 2010 95 percent of the contract awards were given to local firms.
