Living Wage- Keeping Workers and Their Families Out of Poverty
February 2, 2018
Coast Landscaping Inc. is interested in promoting economic development, job creation, and job retention. That’s why in 2018, the company decided to update our base wages to a similar model to the City of San Diego’s Living Wage. The intention of doing this is to keep workers and their families out of poverty. This pay scale will also help enable a full-time worker to meet basic needs and avoid economic hardship. By paying service employees a more standardized living wage, the hope is to improve quality of service, by reducing high turnover, absenteeism, and instability in the workplace.
