The following is written on my yogurt container, ” We value our employees.  We are a family-run company in California with just over 50 employees.   We pay a competitive wage to all our staff members and provide an excellent benefit package, including full health care insurance for all who work here, and their families.”  On Labor Day let’s praise companies that value their employees!!

According to NPR 1 in 4 American workers makes less that $10.00 an hour.  We give these “job creators” so much political power.  Can we please have “Living Wage Job Creators” and job creators that understand we need to take care of our earth for the future generations!!

As consumers we must reward the companies that pay a living wage and offer affordable health care to their employees!!  Happy Labor Day!!
