Carolina Mornings’ Living Wage Commitment

What is the Living Wage Commitment?

Carolina Mornings cares deeply about our team members! To exemplify our role as a steward in the WNC community, we have volunteered to pay a Living Wage to all of our employees, regardless of their role within the company.

Carolina Mornings recognizes that employees that are properly compensated are better able to:

• Support their families and themselves

• Perform their jobs better and increase retention

• Improve their health and reduce related medical costs


How is the Living Wage determined?

Just Economics of Western North Carolina, a not-for-profit in the region, releases a Living Wage Rate each year. This wage takes into consideration many factors to ensure that residents in the area can afford to live on their published Wage Rate.

Carolina Mornings is proud to maintain a current Living Wage Certification from Just Economics to affirm our commitment to the well being our team members
