Tompkins County Lawmakers Reviewing Living Wage Policy
Tompkins County Administrator Joe Mareane is asking county lawmakers to take a look at the county’s living wage policy.
 
Mareane says Tompkins County is a certified Living Wage Employer, with all county employees paid a Livable Wage, currently $11.67 per hour for full-time employees who receive employer-supported health care benefits, or $12.78 per hour for those not provided health care benefits. The local livable wage is calculated by Alternatives Federal Credit Union and adjusted every two years. 
 
Mareane says the main issue has to deal with whether or not to make it mandatory for all contractors working with the County to pay its workers a living wage.
