Three Tompkins County Businesses Newly Living Wage-Certified

The Tompkins County Workers’ Center is pleased to announce that we now have 75 Certified Living Wage Employers, having just added the following:

· Mama Goose and Mimi’s Attic both located at 430 W. State/MLK Street, Ithaca;
· Aigen Financial Group, LLC, 202 E. State/MLK Street, Ithaca;
· Red Feet Wine Market and Spirit Provisions, 435 Franklin Street, Ithaca.

The three new Living Wage-Certified Employers employ a total of approximately 30 workers; this brings the total of workers, countywide, who are working for Living Wage Employers up to approximately 1,650.

The Workers’ Center initiated the Living Wage Employer Certification Program in 2006 to publicly recognize and reward those employers who pay a Living Wage, as defined by Alternatives Federal Credit Union. Any employer in the private, public, and non-profit sectors is eligible to apply. With your help, we can provide incentives for other employers in our community!
