Big wage hike for Food Co-op staff
April 8, 2020
On April 1 the Skagit Valley Food Co-op increased pay for its hourly staff $4 per hour and $5 per hour for cashiers. That is the second wage boost for staff: They were given a “Hero Bonus” of $2 per hour for all staff and $4 per hour for cashiers for all hours worked in March.
Food Co-op member-owners were informed by Tony White, the new general manager of the Food Co-op, in an April 1 email. He praised staff for “the endless hours they have worked and for their incredible dedication to our Co-op. They truly have been heroes throughout this trying time.”
