Living wages help treat employees “as the professionals they are, allow[ing] them to transfer that economic support through the many economic branches of our community, thus making us all stronger and more viable long term.” – Michelle M. Temple, Retail Manager at Open Eye Cafe & Caffe Driade
Orange County Living Wage certifies and publicizes businesses and organizations who pay their workers a living wage.
Businesses and organizations voluntarily certify as living wage employers because they believe fair compensation is good for their employees and the local economy. We engage our community in living wage advocacy through consumer campaigns such as “buycotts” of local living wage employers, promotion of certified employers’ events, and recognition of certified employers’ achievements. We promote our certified employers through social and print media and at local events. Our employer directory [link] includes a wide variety of for-profit, nonprofit, and municipal employers.
