Orange County Living Wage is pleased to announce that The Meantime Coffee Co. has certified as a living wage employer.
The Meantime Coffee Co. is a student-run nonprofit coffee shop right in the heart of UNC’s campus, partnering with Carrboro Coffee Roasters to bring Chapel Hill the finest and freshest coffee from around the world. They’ve decided to pay a living wage because, according to CEO Alaina Plauche: “We care about the well-being of our baristas. The current minimum wage is not enough to sustain today’s cost of living. And, as everyone at Meantime is a student, it’s even more important to ensure a living wage because we have tuition costs to worry about.”
