A people centered approach — doing what is best for employees and their families, is what is best for businesses and their customers.

A first step is paying a living wage. Target became the first low-wage chain to announce it will raise pay to $15 an hour by 2020 and raise the minimum pay to $11 beginning this month. This move eliminates the claims of corporate lobbyists and others who say it is bad for business and can’t be done. It’s actually the opposite – being socially responsible is what is good for business

“Low pay is hurting America’s working families and holding back our economy, which depends on a thriving consumer class to drive growth.” Good for People and Business.
