Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, just announced that he will be raising the company’s minimum wage to at least $15.

Walmart, Target, and Costco are right behind them. Where is the restaurant business in all of this? Why aren’t they being held accountable?

Chipotle appears to follow state law on minimum wage. While in some states, the minimum wage is $15, in others it is only $7.25 an hour. That isn’t a sustainable salary.

Chipotle’s job page on their website calls their jobs “careers.” But how can you exist on a career that isn’t paying you enough?

According to their site, “Working at Chipotle is unlike other “quick-serve” restaurants...We also provide a clear path to success.”

Chipotle has been a leader on things like sustainability and sourcing ethically produced food.

They could be a leader on this too.

Urge Chipotle to pay its employees a fair wage: $15 an hour minimum.
