Ithaca Wal-Mart Living Wage sign now

Whereas a living wage in Tompkins County (Ithaca) New York is $17,544 for a single person (AFCU, 2002);

Whereas Wal-Mart pays many full-time cashiers and sales associates between $14,000 and $15,000 (some earn less than $13,000!) which is less than a living wage;

Whereas employers paying less than a living wage impose a tax burden on the community to provide health and other services for low-wage workers;

Whereas Wal-Mart, with $9,000,000,000 in profit during 2003 alone, is a company that can afford to do better;

Therefore, we, the undersigned residents and friends of the Tompkins County (Ithaca), New York area, urge Wal-Mart to ensure that all full-time employees at the Ithaca store are paid no less than a living wage of $17,544 plus health insurance for the year.

    City Ithaca State New York Without your workers, both foreign and domestic, you would not be making the obscene profits that you are raking in - remember that, and share your wealth so that your employees may take care of themselves and their families.
