Good for business, customers and the economy
Rhinebeck, NY (PRWEB) June 24, 2016
Topical BioMedics, Inc, makers of Topricin and MyPainAway Pain Relief Products, join The ‘Business for a Fair Minimum Wage’ list of companies that call for a minimum wage raise to $12 an hour by 2020 and then adjusting it yearly to increase at the same rate as the median hourly wage. This will restore the lost value of the minimum wage, assure the wage floor does not erode again, and make future increases more predictable.
The company is among part of an exceptional list of companies that believe paying employees a fair wage is of the upmost importance to the health and vitality of the economy and the millions of wage workers that make our economy work. Among them are Stonyfield • Ben & Jerry's • Eileen Fisher • Parnassus Investments • Organic Valley • New Belgium Brewing • Amy's • Dr. Bronner's • Replacements Ltd • Seventh Generation • American Sustainable Business Council • Greater NY Chamber of Commerce • Janska • Earth Friendly Products • ABC Carpet & Home • Amalgamated Bank • Wetzel's Pretzels • Zingerman's • The Tea Spot • Pi Pizzeria • Equal Exchange • Bhakti • Uncommon Goods • American Income Life • Logan Ace Hardware • Lamey Wellehan Shoes • and hundreds MORE
All the listed companies support gradually raising the federal minimum wage to at least $12 by 2020. Today’s outdated minimum wage has far less buying power than it had in the 1960s. Stuck since 2009 at $7.25 an hour – just $15,080 a year – the minimum wage impoverishes working families and weakens the consumer spending at the heart of our economy.
Raising the minimum wage also makes good business sense: Workers are also customers! Minimum wage increases boost sales at local businesses as workers buy goods and services they could not afford before. And nothing drives job creation more than consumer demand. Businesses also see cost savings from lower employee turnover and benefit from increased productivity, product quality and customer satisfaction.
The most rigorous studies of the impact of actual minimum wage increases show they do not cause job loss. Raising the minimum wage will keep more dollars circulating in the local economy and reduces the growing strain on the social safety net caused by inadequate wages.
The campaign circling “Business for a Fair Minimum Wage” is tagged Fair Pay Today. Companies are communicating their support by placing small circular stickers on all packaging that read, ‘Fair Pay Today’.
