Below is a calculator to determine what a 'living wage' would be in your location. Do you think this is accurate?
Jobcase believes every employer should help provide either a living wage or a pathway to it. We understand that not every job will be able to pay a living wage. But we believe employers should provide one of the following 3 cases for every job:
a) provide a living wage
b) if providing a sub-living wage, THEN provide an internal pathway to a living wage (clarify how to get promoted, provide training/education, etc).
c) if providing a sub-living wage, and no pathway to internal living wage job, THEN provide flexibility in schedules for any employee who is pursuing training outside employment for their own pursuits of a living wage. There should be no punitive actions taken against employees who are trying to get themselves to that level on their own when employers fail to provide it.
