City of Ithaca to receive living wage certification

The City of Ithaca has been certified as a living wage employer and will make the official announcement Monday morning at City Hall.

Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick says he was proud to fight to increase wages for the lowest paid employees so that the City could become a living wage employer.

The living wage hourly rate as determined by a bi-annual study from Alternatives Federal Credit Union is $12.62 an hour with health insurance, or $13.94 per hour without.

Tompkins County currently has 93 certified living wage employers.
