Living Wage: Why It's Important to Us
Animal Emergency & Referral Center of Minnesota is committed to providing a minimum of a living wage for all of our team members. Living wage reflects what an individual needs to earn in order to have a decent standard of living, including shelter, utilities, nutrition, transportation, medical care, childcare, some recreation, and one class yearly to upgrade an education. The living wage differs from the minimum wage in that the latter is set by law and can still fail to meet the requirements listed above. The amount that must be earned per hour to achieve a living wage is variable from region to region. Currently, AERC's lowest paid employee's hourly rate is 13% above the living wage hourly rate.
Thinking of Moving to Minnesota? Here’s Why You Should!
Minnesota is a great state with a lot to offer! With 11,000 lakes, Minnesota has more shoreline than California, Hawaii, and Florida combined. Our summers are packed with festivals, and as for winter, we have more cross-country ski trails than any other urban area in the country. People come from all over the world to be treated at the Mayo Clinic. We gave the world Prince and Bob Dylan. And if that’s not enough, we’re the birthplace of the original Zombie Pub Crawl.
