Mining employees say cost of living puts them off the NWT
The salaries are great, the cost of living in the NWT is not. That’s the verdict of the latest mining employee survey. The survey is the first of its kind since 2009. More than 2,500 employees answered, across the territory’s four diamond mines. While the availability of work and high pay were given as good reasons to live in the NWT, many workers said the cost of living stops them becoming full-time residents of the territory.
