Lifelong strengthens nonprofit workforce with $15 minimum wage

Lifelong is implementing a $15 minimum wage. Should the Seattle City Council and other nonprofits follow in Lifelong's footsteps? Tamara Bauman believes increased wages will improve organization outcomes and employee standards of living.

(Page 2 of 2)

I’m proud that my Union chapter and the leadership team at Lifelong were able to successfully bargain for an in-house $15 per /hour minimum wage policy, effective immediately. Now, we need to pass the Mayor’s $15 per hour proposal to help other service providers attract and retain enthusiastic, motivated workers who can provide the best possible services to their clients. As an organization that emphasizes social justice as a key aspect of individual health and wellness, it only makes sense for Lifelong to be in the vanguard of this movement for economic justice.

Tamara Bauman is a Program Coordinator in Clinical Services at Lifelong Aides Alliance and a member of SEIU Healthcare 1199NW.
