Whole Foods

Increases wages

19 Nov, 2014

Whole Foods announces a $1.25 pay rise for all San Francisco hourly employees at the lower wage tier, bringing the pay to $12.75 an hour. The raise will be in effect four months before the city’s new $12.25 minimum wage ordinance is officially required.

This is a significant gain for non-traditional union drives taking on enormous corporations like Whole Foods to win higher wages and improved working conditions.
