Thrive! Employer Recognition Program
Living wages benefit workers, their families, businesses, our community, and our economy. The Thrive! Employer Recognition Program seeks to connect consumers to businesses that are committed to creating a just and sustainable local economy where everyone can thrive!
Thrive! modeled the Employer Recognition Program after Just Economics of Western North Carolina who has the largest living wage recognition program in the nation! Since launching the Employer Recognition Program in November 2014, 100 employers have been recognized! Why not celebrate by stopping by to congratulate these business who are helping make our community a place where everyone can thrive!
