Living Wage Certification Program Forum

Sponsored by the Economic Inequality Action Team of the Durham People’s Alliance


Mark Hebbard, Living Wage Certification Coordinator, Just Economics (Asheville, NC) 

Imprudent action by the General Assembly last year has taken away the ability of local Living Wage ordinances (such as those passed in Durham in 1996) to do anything more than require a Living Wage be paid to public employees. 

One innovative approach to addressing the Living Wage issue that requires no public action or approval is a “Living Wage Certification Program,” such as the one run by Just Economics in Asheville. The Just Economics Certification Program aims to reward existing Living Wage Certified Employers in the community, to provide employers with tools and incentives to increase workers’ wages up to a living wage, to connect consumers to employers that provide a living wage, and to promote a just and sustainable local economy. 

Come and learn more about what it would take to implement a Living Wage Certification Program in Durham!
