Employees at one fast food franchise got some good news today.
“Employees at a Chick-fil-A in Sacramento, CA are getting a raise as of Monday, June 4, and some will be earning up to $18 an hour.
Yup, that’s right. Aside from their delectable Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich, we all have another reason to love this fast food chain — their efforts in giving employees a living wage.
At the moment, the raise will be implemented at franchise locations owned by Eric Mason, where wages will increase from $12.50-$13 an hour to $17- $18.
According to KXTV, who initially reported on the story, leadership level employees will also get paid time off and all employees will get paid sick leave.
‘We’re looking for people trying to raise families, improve their lifestyle,’ Mason says to KXTV.
In California, the minimum wage is increasing by $.50 every year up until the year 2022, when it will reach $15 an hour.
However, according to KXTV, Mason said he would have increased wages regardless.”
