Are you earning a "living wage"? If not - are you getting on the pathway to it?

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.

Well, that's what we think. What do you think?
