Labor Day Proclaimed Living Wage Day in Chapel Hill

Post Date:09/01/2017 2:00 PM
 

LIVING WAGE AT THE CURRYBLOSSOM CAFE

Curryblossom Cafe is a living-wage certified (full service) restaurant in Chapel Hill.

The Chapel Hill Town Council is celebrating this Labor Day – a holiday honoring workers – by proclaiming it Living Wage Day, encouraging people to show their support and appreciation for living wage certified employers.

Chapel Hill joins with Orange County Living Wage http://www.orangecountylivingwage.org/ and its month-long campaign in September which honors 126 local employers http://www.orangecountylivingwage.org/certified_employers who voluntarily pay a living wage.

The Town of Chapel Hill proclamation recognizes that a living wage can lift workers out of poverty and toward the middle class. The minimum wage has not increased in North Carolina beyond the federally mandated minimum of $7.25. Meanwhile, the costs of housing, food, child care, and health care have increased substantially in the eight years since the federal minimum was last raised.

Employers like the Town of Chapel Hill that pay their workers a living wage report substantially less turnover, better job performance, and higher levels of positive customer engagement.
