The Tompkins County Workers’ Center is pleased to announce that we now have certified 90 employers as being Living Wage Employers, having just recently added the latest five such employers:

• Weaver Wind Energy, 233 Cherry Street, Ithaca.

Sunny Days; Court St. Chiropractic; St. Paul’s Church; Trumansburg Community Nursery School, and Weaver Wind Energy employ a total of 25 workers; this brings the total of workers, countywide and regionally, who are working for Living Wage Employers up to over 2,930 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. 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!
