ACORN’s Living Wage Resource Center

update oct 2012 there are some good resources at http://fairwages.org, the Eureka Fair Wage Act website/blog.

update march 2011 both of these sites have sadly disappeared I will try to find some new resources on this important topic.

ACORN’s Living Wage Resource Center

Welcome to ACORN’s Living Wage Resource Center website. What you will find here is a brief history of the national living wage movement, background materials such as ordinance summaries and comparisons, drafting tips, research summaries, talking points, and links to other living wage-related sites. (Please also visit www.raisewages.org for the latest on minimum wage ballot initiatives across the country).

Visitors to the web site should keep in mind that there is no magic formula for a successful living wage campaign. Every campaign is different — dependent on the campaign leaders and their constituencies, local politics and power dynamics, the campaign coalition’s interests and scope, resources, experience, timelines, local and regional economies, etc.
