All members of the Living Wage Western Mass must agree with the Coalition’s basic principles:

A Living Wage is a Human Right. All employees should earn a Living Wage, a wage that enables employees to meet their basic needs including: decent housing; food; transportation; clothing; utilities; and medical care.

Coalition members will make it a priority to patronize certificated living wage employers.
