A JUST WAGE TOOL
The Just Wage Framework & Tool is designed to encourage discernment and dialogue among multiple stakeholders, from employers, workers, and union activists to professors, policymakers, and faith or community groups. In short, we hope to engage anyone interested in envisioning a more just economy for all.
The Just Wage Tool can be used in multiple ways: an employer or worker might want to assess an actual workplace; an entrepreneur or policymaker might decide to determine an ideal scenario; a union or community organization might want to discern group priorities in a campaign to improve pay.
To use the Just Wage Tool, explore the list of indicators under each criterion, selecting from the drop-down box next to each each indicator the answer that best matches your particular scenario. Once you’ve completed this for all seven criteria, press the submit button to see the results visualized as a Just Wage Honeycomb. The more positive the answers for each criterion, the more the associated hexagon will turn from white (all indicators checked “strongly diagree”) to bold gold (all indicators checked “strongly agree”). The more gold the Just Wage Honeycomb, the more the given scenario approaches a Just Wage.
Note that you must provide an answer to each indicator in order to move onto the next criterion.
