Tompkins County Workers’ Center Certifies New Employer as Living Wage-Certified

The Tompkins County Workers’ Center is pleased to announce that we now have certified 85 employers as being Living Wage Employers, having just added the following:

• Gadabout Transportation Services

Gadabout Transportation Services employ a total of 27 workers; this brings the total of workers, countywide and regionally, who are working for Living Wage Employers up to over 2,464 people.

The Workers’ Center initiated the Living Wage Employer Certification Program in 2006 to publicly recognize and reward those employers who pay a living wage. The total of workers in Tompkins County who are working for Living Wage-Certified Employers is now over 1,750. 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!
