Editor’s Note: From the Long Beach Coalition for Good Jobs & a Healthy Community Newsletter
On Tuesday, the Long Beach City Council will decide whether or not to vote YES on a living wage policy that would ensure companies with new contracts with the city would pay their food-service and retail workers at the Long Beach Airport & Convention Center a livable wage ($13/hour, 5 paid sick days, and 100% tip protection). Research has shown that when workers earn a more livable wage, worker productivity and overall satisfaction and service improves. A healthy and productive workforce is good for families and good for business.
Join students, workers, clergy, and community leaders to urge our city leaders to move forward with strong language for a Living Wage at the Airport and Convention Center, two of the largest publicly-owned tourism venues of our city.
