Ethical Business Leaders

Ethical Business Leaders

What do Ethical Businesses and business leaders do?

Ethical business leaders are essential partners in stopping wage theft and restoring middle class jobs that can support families in this nation. Ethical business leaders not only try to do the right thing with their own employees, but they publicly advocate with their peers to do the right thing. They are willing to speak publicly about the need for stopping wage theft and paying workers decent wages and benefits.

Our friends from the Tompkins County Workers' Center and Just Economics have developed Living Wage certification programs that lift up businesses that do right by their employees and pay them a living wage. The Madison Workers' Rights Center and Interfaith Coalition for Worker Justice of South Central Wisconsin developed a Just Dining guide for downtown Madison restaurants.
